Mirchi kaSalan Recipe | Hari Mirchi kiSabzi Recipe | Green Chili Curry Recipe

Hari mirchi ka salan is a Maharashtrian style hot, peanut based curry. Hari mirch means green chilies in Hindi. Also known as mirch ki sabzi, this curry is made with yellow wax peppers or banana peppers. Banana peppers are moderately hot and fit for eating as a side dish with rotis. The peanuts lend the gravy a smooth texture.

If you are looking for easy recipes for lunch, especially for days when you do not have much in your refrigerator, this hari mirch ki sabji can be made within a few minutes. I have added some regular green chilies to curry to make it hotter because the peanut powder absorbs the flavors and brings down the heat.

Let’s begin with the recipe of banana peppers curry with step by step pictures.
