  • 750 gram Mutton
  • 250 gram Fat
  • 2 tbsp Garlic Paste
  • 1 liter Water
  • Salt to taste
  • 5-6 Tomatoes peeled
  • 6-7 Green Chilies
  • 2 tbsp Ginger Bars


  • Take a wok and add mutton with bone and fat in it. Take almost 1 liter (4 regular glass) of water in a jug and mix the garlic paste in the water. Add half liter water in the wok and keep the remaining for using in cooking. Lit the flame and place wok on it. Add salt and cover the lid for 40 minutes on low flame.
  • Keep on checking and if needed add more garlic water. After 20 minutes of cooking uncover it and add the rest of the water. Cover the lid again.
  • Uncover the lid after 40 minutes and see if the meat is tendered. Cut the tomatoes in halves and add in the wok. Again, cover the lid for 10 minutes or until tomatoes are soft.
  • Remove the lid and peel the tomatoes and gently mesh them. Cook for another 5-6 minutes on high flame.
  • Add 8-10 green chilies cut into half.
  • Finally cook it until oil starts to separate. Dish it out. Garnish it with Fresh coriander chopped, Julienne cut ginger and Kasuri Methi.
  • Your Charsi Karahi is ready. Serve hot and enjoy with nan.


  • You can use butter or desi ghee instead of fat.
  • Peshawri kehwa is the best combination with it.
  • The charcoal (Koyla) smoke/aroma may take the taste of this karahi to another level.
