Fresh Lamb Karahi

Lamb karahi is one of the most popular dishes in northern India, Afghanistan and Pakistan. This lamb curry is known for its spiciness, richness and deep red colouring. Actually, it is very similar to a Bengali mutton curry. However, what makes a lamb karahi unique is that it is prepared in a karahi dish, which is a thick and deep cooking pot. A karahi dish wouldn’t be genuine if it wasn’t prepared in the traditional karahi pot.

The leading Afghan food in Oxfordshire

The crown of Afghan cuisine, Kabuli palow is often said to have been initially created by the upper-class families of Kabul who could afford to prepare this elaborate meat and rice dish. Over time, palow had spread across the country and changed its name to qabili palow.

Derived from the Dari word qabil, meaning capable or able, it was considered that only a truly skilled chef could make an excellent Afghan-style pilaf.

Moreover, this national dish traditionally consists of steamed long-grained rice mixed with caramelized carrots, raisins, almonds, and chunks of lamb meat. However, chicken and beef are also often used. We are proud to be the leading Afghan food shop in Oxfordshire.
