Is a Karahi Spicy?

Many people also ask about the spiciness of karahi. Yes, it is! if you make it with a local touch. People from India, Pakistani and Bangladesh like spicy food so most of the dishes are spicy. Karahi is one of them that people love to eat with spices but if you are not spice friendly then you can also avoid the spicy masala when making karahi to make it according to your taste buds. Taste of tomatoes in curry makes a real taste of karahi so it can’t be a substitute.
