NotesThis dish origiates from Hyderabad an area that has always specialised in the
lucrative spice trade,especially pepper and chillies.Even within India, the abandon with which these hot ingredients are used in the Hyderabad cuisine is legendary.
Remember the heat level of similar looking chillies can vary wildly, even on the same plant,so when using a whole pound, taste them first.
