Jalfrezi or jhal frezi means quick fry and originates as a spicy dish of the British Raj era. Generally cooked with chicken, peppers, onions and green chillies, it is now one of the most popular Indian restaurant dishes - with big, bold and punchy flavours...

20 mins

Cooking Time:

40 mins

Ingredients:

4 Chicken Breasts, cubed (or 8 Thighs)
 
  4 tbsps Vegetable Oil 
  6 Green Chillies 
  3 Garlic Cloves, grated 
  1 tbsp Cumin Powder 
  6 Fresh Tomatoes, chopped

I have already told my friends about your site and will be ordering more things soon."
