Peshawari chicken karahi recipe | Murgh Peshawari karahi

Peshawari Chicken Karahi recipe or Murgh Peshawari karahi is an easy to make and a best chicken karahi recipe among various other karahi recipes which is cooked using both ghee and oil. This is basically a pakistani chicken karahi recipe originated from a place named peshawar in pakistan. The combination of ghee and oil gives a restaurant style taste to the recipe.

Also this recipe needs very few ingredients and little spices. With very few ingredients and little amount of spices this peshawari chicken curry tastes heavenly. Tomatoes in this recipe give a

nice tangy taste and also haldi (turmeric powder) is skipped in this recipe. If you want haldi then you can, but it's just optional. The red colour imparted from tomatoes itself is enough to make the recipe look vibrant.

Chicken Peshawari recipe goes well with flavoured rices like Bagara Rice or jeera rice and you can serve it with traditional recipe Pulihora or steamed rice as well. This suits better for rotis, naans, phulkas and other breads. I served this Peshawari Murgh with Bagara Rice. Do try with this rice and relish its yumminess.
