Mirchi ka salan

Mirchi ka salan-
Side dish for Pulaos, ghee rice and Biriyanis. It goes extremely well with them. This will be by entry for the next potlock in my friends house. I referred Vahrehvah for this recipe. He has shown it in a simple way. Just follow his video, you will never go wrong.

I have used Banana peppers to make this dish. you can add thai chillies or capsicum or brinjal to make this dish
