Salan..Its a thick gravy like dish which goes good with many of the flavoured rice.It is served in most of the restraunts.Mainly with Dum Biryani.Genereally this Salan is made by adding Mirchi and is called as Mirchi Ka Salan and when Eggplant is added then it is called as Baghara Baigan.

My dish is different..i used Tomato as a whole to make this..Once I had it in my Hostel,I liked it and now made it according to my taste.I dont like groundnuts so I have made it with Cashews.Its ur call now.
