Salan is a spicy Hyderabadi dish usually made with long chillies. It is served with biryani and raita . Here is an interesting variant of salan made with mixed veggies like beans, carrots and green peas.

The Subzi ka Salan gets its tanginess from curds and tomato pulp, while its irresistible aroma and brilliant flavour come from a dry powder of spices like clove and pepper. Coconut milk gives a luxuriant mouth-feel and also gives the Subzi ka Salan a pleasant twist by balancing the sharpness of the spices well.

Subzi ka Salan is indeed a great accompaniment for rotis and rice .

This subzi is great to eat with chapatis or nice crispy butter naan. The combination of mixed vegetables along with coconut milk gives it a great flavour.
