“Karahi”, as the name suggests is a fragrant tomato based meat dish cooked in a karahi (a wok-like-pan, but heavier) and served with a vibrant fragrant garnish of cilantro, slit green chillies and slivers of ginger. Taking about 15 to 30 minutes to prepare, cook, and serve; Karahi is one of the easiest, quickest, and just as succulent dishes.
Hailing from the traditional and Pukhtun town of Landi Kotal, topping Khyber Pass, near Afghanistan; Karahi is a dish that portrays mightiness and valor of the Shinwari and Afridi warrior tribes from the mountainous region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,the home to original Karhai.
Meat is generally the most favoured choice of food in the Middle East, South Asia, Central Asia, and the Mediterranean. Karahi from the subcontinental regions is quite different from the original dish; Indian karahi is prepared with mostly chicken, tomatoes, coriander, cumin, red pepper, ginger, cilantro and unconventional additions of onions and garlic; whereas the Pakistani version is much closer to the real deal, with no additional ingredients and mutton being the preferred choice of meat.
Karahi can satisfy anyone; adjusting to different taste palates of different regions. The Original version of this dish asks for just small cubes of mutton, tomatoes, green chillies, salt, and animal fat. Staying true to its name, the king of meat dishes is served in and consumed directly from a Karahi, with a side of hot naans.
