Not to be confused with Chicken curry!

Style of embroidery that is unique to Lucknow. 'Chikan' refers to the style of emboridery, and 'kari' is short for kaarigari, which means skill.

Always done with pure white threads on pastel coloured cotton, to allow the the overall effect to be understated yet elegant. Usually appears on sarees or salwar kameezes.

These garments are highly favoured by North Indian women to wear during the hot summer months. The only painful bit is having to regularly starch the salwar kameez/saree, but it is worth it as the one who wears it often draws admiring and envious glances from other women.

Usage

*Mallu visits Lucknow for the first time, and wanders into local garment shop*

Mallu : "Thees eez looking very naiss. Vaat it eez?"

Shop keeper : "Chikan kari, huzoor"

Mallu, totally astonished : "Ey vaat you are saying! Simbly making funs aa? I also make zoke! Then tell me, where is rice and paapad with chicken curry aa?"

*Shop keeper looks at Mallu like he's mad. Mallu returns the gesture*
