Chicken Karahi (called Gosht Karahi when made with goat or lamb instead of chicken) or Karahi Chicken is a dish from the Indian subcontinent, which is characterized by spicy flavor; it specializes in North Indian and Pakistani cuisine. The Pakistan version does not have chili (chili powder) or onions, while the North Indian version uses chili powder. This dish was prepared in Karachi. Cooking and boiling may take 30-50 minutes. The disk can also be saved for later use. It can be paired with naan, kebab, or rice. This dish is one of the hallmarks of Indian and Pakistani cuisine.

As far as curry is concerned, Karahi Chicken is a thick tomato ginger curry from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region. The original and authentic cooking method is very specific. Karahi is usually made with ginger. Garlic and tomatoes as well as fresh green peppers, ginger, chopped garlic, and coriander. Very thick jam sauce, very strong flavor-delicious!

Traditional Karahi has changed a lot over time: in order to increase the amount of masala sauce while reducing costs, onions are frequently added to restaurants, so that many people know they don’t even know the real recipe contains onions. I have also seen variants that use chunks of red onion and chili, such as chicken Jalfrezi. Modern conveniences such as canned tomatoes and canned ginger and garlic are also normal.
