What is Chicken Karahi?
Chicken karahi and sometimes you’ll find it as Karahi Chicken, or in Urdu it’s called “Murgh karahi” it is translated into Chicken in a vessel. Karahi is either made of copper or stainless steel, Indians and Pakistanis use it for cooking and for serving food. Chicken karahi is chicken cooked in spicy and flavorful gravy or masala.
How to Make Chicken Karahi?
Making chicken karahi starts by sauteeing onions in oil or Ghee, and then you add the chicken, the spices follow and then the rest of the ingredients. The steps are few, but you have to go for the next step after the first and on time, let me explain.
You can’t add the chicken to the onion before it turns light brown. You can’t cook the spices for more than a minute to prevent it from getting burned. Following the steps below will result in a delicious and mouth-watering Pakistani dish that you will crave for often.
What Part of the Chicken is Best for Making Chicken Karahi?
You can use any part of the chicken, in fact, chicken karahi is usually made by cutting a whole chicken. I like to use chicken thighs and legs; these parts are forgiving, they don’t get dry quickly if overcooked. Chicken thighs stay juicy for a long time and absorb flavors better than chicken breast.
If you have to use chicken breast, keep the slices big so it won’t get dry while cooking, also add more spices.
