Karhai Gosht

In Curries, Favorite Recipes on July 17, 2011 at 12:46 am
This karhai is incredibly easy and is very similar to the karhai served in dhaba restaurants in Karachi. In our home, we always made karhai with chopped onions. I decided to try making karhai without onions just to see if it was any good. My husband loved it and declared it the best karhai ever and I concur!
It was eaten up so quickly, I din’t even get a picture!
This recipe serves two, but it can easily be doubled.
  • Thinly sliced steak or other lean cut of beef – 1/4 pound
  • 1/2 tsp meat tenderizer powder
  • 1/3 can of crushed tomatoes
  • 2 Whole Green Chillies
  • chopped Cilantro – a few tablespoons.
  • 2 tsp. of Ginger & Garlic Paste
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • Salt (to taste)
  • 1 tsp. of cumin
  • 2 tbsp. of Oil

1) Sprinkle meat tenderizer on beef.
2) Fry beef with the Garlic and Ginger paste in oil.
3)Add 3 glasses of water to meat.  Cover and let cook on medium heat until meat is tenderized and the water has evaporated.

4)Once the meat is tender and looks cooked, add salt, cumin and garam masala. Fry till the curry is fragrant. 5)Add crushed tomato and cover the pot. The curry is done once the oil separates
6)Add green chillies and chopped cilantro.
Serve with naan/paratha.
