This chicken kadai recipe is delicious, spicy, and flavourful. Made with bone-in chicken, onions, tomatoes and spices this chicken curry tastes too good to be true. On almost every Indian restaurant menu this karahi curry is guaranteed to be a people pleaser without having to spend a fortune.

A true show-stopper curry that will be the star of any Indian buffet!

This karahi chicken recipe can be prepared in under an hour with simple steps and ends up tasting exactly like Indian street food.

Chicken karahi, or kadai chicken, is one of the most popular curries all over India and Pakistan. Chicken karahi is named after the pan it is cooked in – a heavy, round-bottomed pan similar to a wok.

I have lots of chicken curries on my website and this is another one of my favourites. These recipes include my traditional chicken curry, chicken jalfrezi, and Peshawari chicken karahi. There are subtle differences in the chicken curry recipes, but I promise you that they are all full of flavour.

A chicken karahi is called that because of the utensil that you cook the chicken curry in is called a karahi. Chicken karahis have a thick and spicy masala sauce that makes it the perfect combination with naan bread. I like to serve it with chapatti, but it’s up to you.

I have another karahi recipe called my Peshawari chicken karahi. That is an authentic take on a karahi recipe from the Peshawari Mountain tribe that doesn’t use any onions.

This karahi recipe uses onions, so is slightly different. Both are just as delicious! This chicken karahi is delicious and packed full of flavour so try it and you will be sure to love it!

Instructions

  • In a karahi pot or round-bottomed wok heat up the oil on low heat until hot
  • Add the finely diced onions and cook on medium heat for 4-5 minutes until lightly browned but be careful not to burn
  • Add the ginger paste and the garlic paste then cook for 2-3 minutes mixing thoroughly to ensure that the pastes evenly distribute through the curry
