Chicken Jalfrezi Recipe

A spectacular chicken preparation where chicken is marinated with a unique Jalfrezi mix and then fried to render it crisp and juicy. It is then braised in a rich onion and tomato sauce with added lemon and chilies for giving that extra spice to the dish. Enjoy it hot with fresh naan or steamed basmati rice!

Preparation Time: 2 hours
Cooking Time: 45 minutes

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 Tbs Jalfrezi Spice mix

  • 1/2 cup Cooking oil

  • 800g Chicken cut into 3/4" pieces

  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 3-4 onions, chopped

  • 14 oz tin Chopped tomatoes

  • Juice of ½ lemon

  • 10-12 Coriander leaves, finely chopped

  • Salt and freshly Ground black pepper, as per taste

  • Grounded Chilli powder (optional)


Directions:

  • In a small bowl, combine the Jalfrezi Spice Mix with some oil and form a paste.

  • Rub this all over the chicken pieces and leave it in the refrigerator for almost two hours.

  • Heat some oil in a pan and add the chopped garlic. Sauté for a minute and then add the onions. Fry them till they turn golden brown. Stir in the Jalfrezi Spice Mix and oil mixture and continue to fry.

  • Mix in the tomatoes and continue to cook over medium-high flame for few minutes.

  • Add the lime juice, sprinkle some black pepper and pour in some water to form a thick and consistent sauce. Cook over reduced heat for around 5-10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat some oil in a deep pan and fry the marinated chicken pieces till they turn golden brown. Add them to the prepared sauce and continue to cook over reduced flame for further 10-12 minutes. Add water if required.

  • Sprinkle some salt andChilli powder (as per taste).

  • Remove from flame and garnish with the some chopped Coriander leaves. Serve hot with butter nann or steamed basmati rice.


Cooking Tips:

  • Sprinkle some garam masala and melted ghee (or butter) on top before serving.

  • Try adding roughly chopped red bell peppers just when the chicken is almost cooked. It significantly enhances the taste of the whole dish.

  • Try adding a spoonful of yogurt in the Jalfrezi Curry Spice Mix and oil marinade. It will give a tangy twist to the chicken.
