Tasty Desi Murgh Karahi | Farm/Home Raised Chicken Karahi |

                Hello loves,  For this recipe i am using the same chicken that was left over from the organic broth recipe that I posted earlier. We bought the chicken at a local organic farm , we slaughtered it ourselves. There is a tremendous difference in the chicken you buy at a local market compared to the one from the farm. The diet , health and the condition the chicken lived in is very important factor to consider. Animal welfare is very important because whatever condition that animal lived in will affect you too when you eat it. If you are eating the chicken that comes from factories where they lived a stressful life , never saw a day in the sun , was fed GMO food and grew up with growth hormones etc. Don’t you just wonder what horrible effects it will have on your body and not just that by eating and buying that chicken you are supporting cruelty on animals and the companies that run it.

           Yes eating healthy can be a bit expensive for some people but isn’t it better to eat less but healthy rather then to eat a lot but total crap that will bring no good to you or your body. Its a matter of choice and what your prioritize. Buy local and support small organic farms.  The Farm/Home raised chicken takes longer to get tender compared to the one you buy at the grocery store which is why its better if you boil it before starting this recipe or you may also use a pressure cooker. If you are just simply boiling the chicken before you can also add its broth to the Karahi , it will make a tremendous difference in taste. I didn’t have any clear broth to use because I made the drink out of it. You can read my organic broth drink recipe here.
