Karahi

Pronunciation ka-rai
A karahi is a type of thick, circular, and deep vessel (similar in shape to a wok) used in Indian and Pakistani cooking. It is useful for shallow or deep frying of meat, potatoes, sweets, and snacks such as samosa and fish, and for simmering of stews (which may also be called "karahi"). Karahi are traditionally made out of cast iron, although other materials like stainless steel and copper are sometimes used, and non-stick varieties do exist.
Synonym: karai
