Chicken Jalfrezi

Found a recipe for Chicken Jalfrezi the other day which was really good, and also fairly quick and easy to make!

I promised to email Michelle the recipe, but forgot, so will post it here instead!!

Serves 2-3

Ingredients: 2 chicken breasts, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 onion sliced, 2 chopped bell peppers, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 1 tsp chopped ginger, curry paste (didnt know what exactly they meant, so I made a paste from 2tsp tikka spices, 1 tsp curry powder, 1/2 tsp garam masala and a few drops of olive oil – I’d say you can use something similar!), 1 tsp chopped chilli, 1 tsp ground coriander, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 can chopped tomatos, chopped coriander leaves.

Method: Cube the chicken.  Heat some oil and fry the cumin seeds until they splutter.  Add onions, peppers, garlic and ginger – fry for 6-8 minutes.  Add the “paste” and fry.  Stir in the chilli, coriander, cumin, salt and a few tablespoons of water to stop it sticking.  Fry for 2 mins more.  Add the chicken and fry for approx 5 mins.  Add the chopped tomatos and coriander leaves.  Cover and cook for 15 mins.
