Makhni Karahi

Chicken fried with tomato and spices and tempered with butter…….. how amazing does that sound! 😀

Makhni Karahi is one of the famous dishes of my lovely city, Lahore, (Pakistan) and the beauty of this dish is that it is cooked in 3 – 4 spices, tomatoes and butter and its super easy and super fast. Most of the restaurants serve it with raita (whipped yogurt) and Kachumar Salad (mixed vegetable salad).
