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.
