The Hyderabadi Biryani experience is simply incomplete without the quintessential Mirchi ka Salan. Mirchi ka Salan is a curry of Bhavnagari chillies, flavoured with a rich paste of roasted peanuts, coconut, sesame seeds and red chillies.

The spicy paste gives you a delectable kick, while tamarind pulp packs the extra punch. The chillies are not all that spicy, so it complements the paste very well.

In every respect, this tongue-tickling curry is the perfect match for Hyderabadi Biryani – and definitely a must-try.

You can also have a go at other recipes like the Hyderabadi Sofiyani Biryani or Hyderabadi Baingan Subzi
