mirchi ka salan flavourdiary

Who don't like lazy, easy recipe which tastes great and using very few ingredients and I love the recipes which are easy and feed the crowd. This recipe uses up very few ingredients,easy to make but takes time to cook...longer it cooks, tastier it is.
Traditionally salan (curry) recipes needs lot of roasting, blending and huge collection of spices using up but today's recipes is cheat salan recipe.This salan is bit on sweeter side and totally tastes different from traditional Hyderabadi Mirchi ka salan, which is on tangy side. The recipe which i am sharing is from dear hubby, which he himself a jiffy creative cook. He helps me out in cooking whenever we have big gathering(20+) at home...lucky me isn't...hehe...but don't think that he does everything, he does around 10% , apart from that he does most important biggest job(looking after my littlest naughtiest princess...phew). Check out the ingredients and steps for this mouthwatering recipe...
