For those who did not understand curd so for them, its yogurt. In Urdu we call it "Dahee".

There is no such thing as onions in Karahi! It's a crime against humanity if you put onions. This is an authentic recipe, just the way it should be. Great stuff!

just one thing though,u must use garlic paste instead of ginger,add ginger only and only at the end and that too for garnishing only.make karahion high flame.chicken should be golden and crispy.i learned karahi by standing and watching the open air hotel walas making it.

As far as i know in the real chicken karahi recipe no one puts timatoes directly into the chicken, should fry tomatoes separatly in a vessel till all water is gone only then should be added to the chicken. this recipe looks like a normal chicken curry reciepe.

Put chicken in Karahi and add 1/2 cup oil and 1 tsp salt Fry the chicken for about 10 to 15 minutes untill it become light golden. now remove oil in separate bowl. Add tomatoes, red and black chillies, garlic in it keep it on fire until water of tomatoes dried off. now add ginger and mix it. Now add oil, (adding oil in start will not allow the chicken to absorb the taste of ingredients added with it) and then add crushed cumin (half a tea spoon). Now add curd green chillies, crushed black pepper (half a tea spoon) and coriander leave fry for 2 to 3 minutes. and then when serving sprinkle some crushed black pepper and roasted and powdered (by hand) cumin. Serve hot with tandori nan. this is a perfect recipe. prepared in most of the restaurants.

OMG !!!! :) what a coincidence !!! I've been making this particular kind of karahi for over a decade now. Its almostt exactly the same. Except i use a lot more green chillies, zeera and throw in a few curry leaves (as i've developed a liking for them). And hmmmm maybe a lil less tomatoes :p But the rest of the ingredients are the same. Prefer this over the restaurant stuff :)

Hi guys I came to this website after 9 years, and wowww my recipe is in top 10. Would like to make some changes as I am more refined now. 1) While frying chicken add 1 tsp garlic in it. 2) When chicken is light brown add ginger and stir for a minute then add tomatoes. with following spices a) 1 tsp red chillies b) ( freshly ground 1/2 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp dry coriander) Thanks for appreciating the recipe

This is the best karahi. I have made it several times. One correction that is: after chicken is turned light golden or white then add ginger. This step is missing that is why some of the viewers are confused.

I havent tried this one yet, but it looks very bad. No ginger/garlic, no other spices. I think nobody ever tried making this karahi before posting on the website.

this is the worst recipe ive ever seen, put chicken in oil!!! be a bit more helpful to those for whom this recipe is supposed to be destined to. Heat up oil then place chicken in it doh.
