White Chicken Karahi Recipe :

It's simple to make White Chicken Karahi. If you keep these tips in mind, you'll be able to whip up a tasty karahi in no time, with a variety of options. The 'karahi' or 'wok' is the most important piece of karahi equipment. The large surface area provided by this vessel contributes significantly to the flavour. Make an effort to purchase a nice non-stick karahi. (Chicken Karahi Recipe)

The creaminess factor: For that white tint, white chicken karahi requires a creamy component. We're employing dairy products such as cream and yoghurt. Cashew or almond cream, as well as coconut milk, are non-dairy alternatives.

Spices are roasted: This is yet another powerful flavour enhancer. Roasted cumin's nutty flavour enhances the overall flavour of karahi.

One-pot meal: The best part is that this recipe just requires one pot, which means one fewer pot to clean.

How to make Chicken White Karahi?

Just follow these simple steps to make delicious Chicken White Karahi at home. 

Instructions For Chicken White Karahi :

Cumin, coriander, and pepper were dry roasted and crushed into powder in a pan. Remove from the equation.

In a wok, heat the oil and cook the chicken pieces for 2 minutes on high heat, or until they change colour.

Combine onion paste, ginger garlic paste, green chilli paste, and ground spices in a large mixing bowl. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the onion water has evaporated.

Cover the top and add the yoghurt. Cook for 10-15 minutes over medium heat, or until chicken is cooked.

After that, add the cream and cook for another minute.

Remove the seeds from the chillies and chop them in half lengthwise. In a karahi, combine half of the chiles.

Garnish with the remaining chile halves and grated ginger.

Notes :

Cook karahi in a wok (karahi) if possible, but if you don't have one, use a large pot or pan with a lot of searing and stir-frying surfaces.

Bone-in chicken: The lipids that improve the flavour of karahi are released by the bones. Stick to bone-in chicken instead. 

Whole Spices: To save time and effort at the last minute, keep a bottle of pre-roasted and ground cumin and coriander seed on hand.

To make onion paste, simply grind the onion until it is a paste in a food processor.

Coconut cream, cashew paste, nut cream, and nut milk are all good non-dairy alternatives to cream and yoghurt. However, the flavour will differ slightly.

Ginger garlic paste is just equal parts ginger and garlic mashed together in a blender.

Depending on personal preference, add ginger to individual servings or leave it out entirely.

If the gravy is too dry to reheat the chicken, add a splash of milk.
