You don't want to order food because you want home-cooked cuisine when you don't have time to cook, when you have unexpected company or when you have been gone all day.


    • 500 gram of bone-in chicken; alternatively, boneless chicken cubes may be used
    • Oil, 3–4 tablespoons
    • 0.5 teaspoons of ginger-garlic paste
    • Four green peppers ground into a paste
    • Salt as desired
    • yoghurt, 3/4 cup
    • The best black pepper to use is 1 teaspoon freshly ground, but powder is also acceptable.
    • 1 teaspoon of coarsely crushed, toasted cumin seeds
    • 1 teaspoon of coarsely crushed, toasted coriander seeds
    • 2 inch ginger, thinly sliced or julienned
    • tetra pack cream or five tablespoons of heavy cream
    • 10 grammes of butter
    • 2 thinly chopped green chilies


    Step 1:

    In a pan, dry roast the pepper, cumin, and corianderThen, make a powder out of it.

    Step 2:

    In a wok with heated oil, add chicken pieces. 3 minutes of high heat cooking is required to remove the pinkish tint.

    Step 3:

    Add the onion, chile, and ginger pastes while keeping the heat at high. Continue stirring.The ground spices from step one, added. The ground spices are neither extremely coarse nor extremely fine, as may be seen. If using, add garam masala as well. 

    Step 4:

    Stirring often, cook the onions for 5 minutes over high heat until the water has evaporated and the onions are tender. After the chicken is soft and the yoghurt water has dried to the proper consistency, add the yoghurt, cover, and cook for 15 minutes.

    Step 5:

    A thin coating of oil has separated on top of the tender chicken. Cook for 5 minutes after adding the cream. After adding cream, don't overcook the food by using high heat.

    Step 6:

    Your white Karahi is prepared when a layer of oil separates on the top. Slice a medium green chile in half, then scoop out the seeds. White karahi should have half of it added for scent; reserve the other half for garnish.

    Final Look

    A speciality of Pakistan is chicken white karahi, which is prepared only sometimes. It's an appetising dish made with beef, yoghurt, and a few seasonings. This Chicken White Karahi recipe is straightforward and combines flavours to make it simple for you to prepare meals at home.

    Serving with:

    Cool beverage, green raita, hari chutney, vegetables, garlic butter rice, tawa naan or roti.


    You can prepare karahi with other meats, such as lamb or beef. The process will be the same; however, because red meat cooks more slowly, make sure the meat is fully done before incorporating the yoghurt.And you can take a small whole chicken that is skinless and bone in and cut into 14–16 pieces. Although bone-in chicken can be used in a hurry, the flavour of the dish is enhanced by the bones.

    White karahi can be prepared in advance by just marinating the chicken in the ingredients listed in the recipe, omitting the yoghurt and cream.

    It would be fine to omit the heavy cream entirely, however I like to add a tiny bit at the very end to give it some richness. I would, however, increase the amount of yoghurt if I left out the heavy cream.

    In the recipe as given, bone-in chicken is required since it gives the dish additional taste. Nevertheless, boneless chicken sliced into cubes can be substituted. As a result, the cooking time will shorten.
