Cooking with a karahi, or Indian wok, is a special cooking method that originated hundreds of years ago in North-West India. The coarsely crushed spices, the intensity of heat and the superspeedy cooking that are a feature of this style of cuisine give karahi cooking its distinctive flavour. Karahi chicken is the original karahi recipe. Constant stirring is the key to success. Serve it with Naan, Parathas or Chapattis.

2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
1 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Ginger paste
