  1. I am so proud of Pakistani recipes. We have a better taste and touch than our neighbors who mostly steal our recipes.

  2. As a 16-year-old learning to cook, I can say this recipe was easy to follow, accessible to new cooks and produced a delicious result that went down well with the family. Will definitely be cooking this again!

  5. Cooking does not come easy for men. My first attempt at cooking chicken karahi was super successful. I followed the steps and got a real tasty dish. Thanks for the recipe. My one suggestion is to advise how much water should be added. Thankfully my guesstimate was good.

  24. How do you roughly grind tomatoes? Also, by crushed dry coriander do we mean coriander powder? Also my chicken always gets watery -- how do i prevent that?
