Hyderabadi Mirchi ka Salan is a gravy recipe which goes on well with chapathi, naan, puri and so on. Even though the name itself suggests mirchi ( chilli ), it is actually not hot but is rather on the spicier side. Here, we use the long variety of chilli which is usually used to prepare mirchi bonda (fritters)  that are light green in color. Here, a gravy is prepared and fried chillis are mixed in the gravy.
