I made this salna vegetarian but if you prefer you can add chicken or mutton.For chicken flavour without chicken add Chicken Bouillon.

Ingredients : 

Saute and Ground :

Black pepper - 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon  - 1/2 inch

Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Onion - 1 medium roughly chopped
Tomato - 1 medium roughly chopped 
Ginger - 1 inch
Garlic - 5 Cloves
Turmeric Pd - 1/2 tsp 
Chilly pd - 1 /2 tsp
Coriander Pd - 1/2 tbsp
Coconut  - 1/2 cup
Mint - 5 to 10 leaves
Coriander - 1/2 handful

Saute all the above with a tsp of oil by Sauteeing at spices first ,then the vegetables and the spice powder and finally add coconut and give a mix and Saute for 1 min  (dont need to saute coconut ) and  ground it to a fine smooth paste by adding some water.

For Sauteeing : 

Oil - 1 to 3 tsp
Onion - 1 medium sliced
Tomato - 1/2 medium sliced
Chicken Bouillon - 2 tsp
Curry leaf - 1 sprig

Method :
