Mirchi ka Salan Recipe
  • 8 or 10 medium sized green chillies (I used 4 big green chillies)
  • 1 medium sized onion
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds (white thil)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes/desiccated coconut/copra

  • 1/4 cup peanuts
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste

  • 1 tsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp tamarind paste/pulp (I use Laxmi brand natural tamarind concentrate)
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander for garnish
  • Oil for making the curry

How to make Mirchi ka Salan:

  • Dry roast the sesame seeds, peanuts, coriander seeds and cumin seeds – one at a time in a pan.
  • Sauté the onion in 1 tsp of oil until transparent.
  • Make a paste of the sesame seeds, peanuts, coriander and cumin seeds along with the sautéed onions and coconut.
  • Slit the green chillies and sauté them in a little oil and set aside. You can remove the seeds from the chillies to reduce the heat. I used big green chillies, so I just chopped them into big pieces.
  • Set the chillies aside and in the same pan add some oil and sauté the ground masala paste along with the ginger garlic paste and tamarind concentrate for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Next add the yogurt, sour cream and salt and mix well till the yogurt is incorporated in the masala.
  • Add water to reach the desired consistency. Make sure you boil the masala well after adding water.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander.
