Chicken Jalfrezi



As you all know, I love spicy food and curries are no exception. One day, I saw this curry on one of local restaurants takeaway form online. However, I chose to order one of regular meals I have. The chicken Jalfrezi stuck in my mind and I decided to give it a go. Well I can honestly say was a delicious curry. I am so glad that I did I highly recommend this curry to everyone.

I don’t cook peppers often unless I am cooking Asian food so it is great to include the sweetness of the peppers as well as the traditional spices used in these kind of curry dishes. The herbs in this dish complement the seasoning as well. The tenderness of the chicken (lamb can also be used in this dish) also makes this curry outstanding.

Sidenote: I was experimenting with dessert rings to present the rice nicely on a plate instead of creating a sloppy mess. I got mine from Amazon.
