Rajasthani Malai Mirch (rajasthani Cream & Chili Side Dish)

Many a times, in our daily routine, we feel lazy to prepare a curry or dal and just want to have a light lunch or dinner. At such times, I prefer to cook something quick-n-easy that I can easily gorge on to with rotis or parathas. One such dish that comes to my rescue is Rajasthani Malai Mirch, an authentic and age-old side dish from Rajasthan. My husband loves to have Malai Mirch in his lunch-box and this side dish is a big hit amongst his colleagues. Since I love flavors in a balanced way, this Malai Mirch renders the spiciness of the chili amidst the smoothness of fresh cream.
