Chicken Karahi Curry

Hello Friends,

Today I am going to share with you the recipe of Chicken Karahi Curry. This is a main course dish and easy to make.

Chicken - 1 Kg.
Onions - 2 big ones
Tomatoes - 3-4 Nos Medium Size
Yoghurt -   3-4 tbsp
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 and Half tbsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Shaan Karahi / Gosht Masala
Tumeric Powder - 1tsp
Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Green Chillies - 2 Nos - Medium Size
Coriander Leaves - For Garnishing.


Marinate chicken with Ginger Garlic Paste, Garam Masala, Shaan Karahi / Gosht Masala, Yoghurt and salt.

Marinated Chicken


1) Take a broad pan , pour oil into it. Once it turns hot, slightly squeeze the onion before putting into the pan. Keep sauteing  till the onions are soft and slight brown.

2) Add finely chopped tomatoes, turmeric powder, chilli powder, slit green chillies and mix it well and keep sauteing till the tomatoes turn little soft.

3) Add the marinated chicken to the pan and saute till the whole masala is sauteed well (Bhunofied) .

4)  Add 2-3 cups of water and let it simmer for another 10-15 min. Since we have already added salt in marination, check the gravy and if the need be add more salt.

5) Remove it in a bowl and garnish with fresh green coriander leaves. Serve it with rice, chappati or nan.

Enjoy !!!


  1. good recipe, It would be better if ready masalas like ,Shahi karai is avoided & available ingredents in the kitchen is added.

  2. Superb receipe from zahra

  3. I love this dish, and so does my husband! I make it maybe once a month or so. I try to add in vegetables to it, too; usually whatever we already have in the refrigerator, just because the curry flavor makes the veggies taste so much better.
