Afghani Chicken Karahi

It’s been few weeks to Eid-ul-Adha and honestly at this point we all are tired of eating mutton and beef. I was craving some dish made with chicken so I decided to make chicken karahi. It was so good that I thought of sharing the recipe with you. There is some twist, it is not a chicken karahi but afghani chicken karahi.
