Spicy Chicken Layered in Fragrant Basmati Rice
Salan is usually served on the side with a Biryani along with a raita to add a something extra to the dish and a bit of a sauce. This one uses large green mirch or chillies for warmth rather then heat. They add a delicious roasted flavour when they are fried in the oil. I think it makes a great sauce for many other types of dishes too. It's a great dipping sauce for kebabs, it also works really well with a grilled steak. Robust and meaty it's fairly simple to cook too.
