How to make:

  1. First mix all the ingredients of the marinade in a bowl and marinate it in the chicken.. And keep it overnight for better taste!! Or at least keep it for 2-3 hours in refrigerator covered with a lid..
  2. Heat a wok, ( normally I used to fry in pan!! But this time I took a wok , because I want to make the curry in same oil and pot) with enough oil to shallow fry the Chicken..when the oil is hot , fry chicken pcs till slightly brown..and keep it aside..chicken curry
  3. Now remove excess oil from the wok and keep as much as you need to make the masala..add the onion, tomato, ginger & garlic to the oil and sauté well along with some salt..
  4. Keep this in low flame till it becomes soft and least for 6-8 minutes. Stir it occasionally and add the liquid marinade left..

  1. I was just recently reading about karahi masala and thought I’d give it a try with chicken, which seems to be the standard use for it. Now I don’t have to invent my own recipe, so you’ve saved me a lot of work. This looks fantastic.

  2. I’d happily dive into this. I love chicken things and chicken curry! Happy FF, Nimmi. 🙂
