Charsi Chicken Karhai is a popular dish from a specific restaurant in Peshawar. Named after the founder of the restaurant, it’s cooked with very simple ingredients, its amazingly flavorful and very easy to make!

Ingredients

  • 2 lb chicken, cut into small pieces

  • 1 lb whole tomatoes

  • 8 green chilis – cut in half

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 3/4 cup ghee

  • 3/4 cup oil (I prefer avacado oil but any cooking oil works)

Directions

  • In a wok or karhai, add the oil and ghee and heat it up on medium-high heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the chicken in, stirring occasionally until it starts to brown up (about 10-15 minutes)
  • Add the tomatoes in, whole, reduce heat to medium-low and cook covered for 10-15 minutes.
  • At this point the tomatoes should soft.
  • Carefully remove about half the oil/ghee.
  • Mash the tomatoes to form a gravy, and add in the salt and chilis
  • Increase heat and stir-fry until the oil separates out (about 5 minutes)
  • Serve with hot naan
