Indian restaurant Chicken Jalfrezi. Big, big flavors. It’s near the top of the list of favorite curries It’s a bit different too. Kind of Chinese thing going on with large chunks of stir-fried onion, and green pepper. Has a bit of a smoky taste. Well, Jalfrezi is the Indian version of stir-fry.
The key to the perfect chicken Jalfrezi recipe are four amazing ingredients — boneless chicken, green chilies, and bell peppers (capsicum),as I mentioned, authentic Jalfrezi recipe is very spicy, and the spice factor comes from green chilies and red chili paste. The word ‘JAL’ means spicy, and needless to say, this recipe is all about chicken coated in a spicy sauce. Unlike chicken tikka Masala and butter chicken that feature chicken cooked in a delicious gravy, Jalfrezi needs a very thick sauce which makes it so lip-smacking good.
This chicken Jalfrezi has been a family favorite for so many years now, and it’s certainly one of my most favorite ways to cook chicken. Indian restaurant chicken Jalfrezi. Try it. You may never go for takeaway again…
