Chicken jalfrezi

This is a Pakistani recipe for a spicy curry. My mum made this dish, and I like it very much. You must try it. This dish is best served with basmati rice, chapattis or naan bread.

ive made ALOT of curries at home and (coming from the curry capital - Bradford) none of them have ever lived up to the restaraunt ones! until now, i absolutely loved this, it is really tasty with strong flavours and so easy to make. All i did different was add some sliced red peppers and at the end i added a tablespoon of double cream, apart from that i stuck to the recipe 100%....will definitely make it again.....thanks for sharing this Alia x

Something else. Added a sliced green pepper just before the end of cooking. Really freshens it up. Also, added fresh green chillies at certain points (arbitrarily) - gave it a bit more kick. Ghee is not strictly necessary - when frying the oil at the start, a similar (and preferred to me) effect is given by adding a knob of butter as well!

Easy and will be cooked in one hour! Indian food had been for eating out only, but now I can cook at home!!(Other recipes sometimes requires so many process and time) Thought maybe some chicken cubes could be added on, but I was amazed that the recipe tastes very good enough without any unhealthy things...

Altered ingredient amounts. I left out the ghee - just wasn't needed in my opinion.

An excellent recipe I added two tablespoons of butter instead of clarified butter and it gave a marvellous constituancy. I aslo added some thinly sliced green and red peppers. I have made this twice and it is superb. It will not dissapoint. This is now my favourite recipe. Since I have been eating currries for 50 years this is a good recomendation Thank you

this is the first curry i have made which didnt involve opening a jar! We all loved it, i too did not have any ghee so just added a little butter and olive oil. We also added a chopped up red chilli. I am about to try it again but would like it with a little more of a kick so will add a little more chilli to it. Other than that extremely easy and very tasty!!
