Pyaz Ka Salan | Shallots Salan | Hyderabadi Recipe

Posted by

The classic Hyderabadi Pyaz Ka Salan recipe that goes very well with any Biryani. I went through a lot of recipes to decide what to serve with a Chicken Biryani and then finally I came across this very easy Pyaz Ka Salan recipe which is made with baby onions. This is the best accompaniment to serve with a Biryani.
You can serve this with plain rice or pair it up with Chicken Paratha, or Keema Paratha to enjoy the Salan. Give this recipe a try and let me know your feedback. 🙂
