“Peshawari Karahi is a specialty of Peshawar, Pakistan. It is one of the top favorite meals of my family. I first ate this karahi at a restaurant in Karachi. I was in love with the aroma, the taste—it was a treat for the tongue. Want to share your own recipe with our community? Simply send it to community@kitchenstories.com!”
