Mirch Baingan Ka Salan at Qureshi’s Kebab & Kurry
Made from peanut and green chilli, the mirch ka salan should be hot – and Qureshi’s offering doesn’t disappoint. Hailing from Hyderabad, the curry is not to everyone’s taste, but if you can handle heat, this is as bold as it gets.
Taste test: Alongside the scary-looking chillies, baby eggplant also features here, enhanced by a deliciously flavourful medley of spices, peanuts and seeds. The curry only gets fiery hot if you choose to bite into the chillies. Go on – we dare you.
Eat it with: Plain rice or naan to offset the spice.
