Prawn & cheese karahi is a popular dish in Pakistani and Indian cuisine. It is made by cooking prawns in a rich and spicy tomato-based gravy along with a generous amount of melted cheese. The dish is traditionally cooked in a wok-like pan called a karahi, which adds a unique flavor to the dish.
The spicy and tangy gravy, combined with the succulent prawns and creamy melted cheese, creates a delectable fusion of flavors and textures. Prawn and cheese karahi is typically served with Naan or Roti and is a perfect dish for a family dinner or a gathering with friends.
