Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaathu everyone!

So, this is now my third chicken curry that I have published on my blog. The first one being the traditional chicken curry, the second one being my chicken jalfrezi and now this one. I have many other chicken curry recipes that I have to publish with subtle differences in their recipes but all full of flavour.

A chicken karahi is called that because of the utensil that you cook the chicken curry in is called a karahi. Chicken karahis have a really thick and spicy masala sauce that makes it the perfect combination with naan bread. We usually have it with chapattis though because my mum says that naans are unhealthy compared to chapattis.

The best chicken karahis I have had have all been in Pakistan. I don’t know what kind of ingredients they put there, but they have always been spot-on amazing with just the amount of spice that burns the back of your tongue without you having to sip water every bite. Honestly once this lockdown has ended, I cannot wait to go Pakistan and just go eat lots of different foods there. I have a plan to make an itinerary to visit all the different tourist attractions there and visit as many food places as I can. And I mean like the street vendors and the not the massive restaurants, but you know those people that are selling food on the street. Their food is always the best! I can’t wait.

This chicken karahi is delicious and packed full of flavour so try it and you will be sure to love it!
