Chicken karhai is one of the very common recipes made in every desi (local) household. This dish is cooked in a wok, known as a karhai in Urdu, and hence the name. This is a straightforward recipe and tastes like the authentic dhabba -style (roadside cafes) karhai in Pakistan.

It can also be made using mutton. Mutton karhai will require extra water and cooking time to make the meat tender.
