Chicken Jalfrezi

Chicken jalfrezi is one of the UK’s much loved Indian curries and it’s not exactly hard to see why. Tender, succulent and juicy chicken pieces lathered in a creamy tomato and onion masala gravy.

So, instead of calling the local Indian takeaway make your own easy chicken jalfrezi. Pair this with homemade naan bread or chapatti to mop up the yummy sauce for a delicious dinner treat. I love all chicken curries and there are so many different variations out there from the classic chicken tikka masala to the famous butter chicken to the not-so-common tomato chicken curry.

Chicken is very well-loved in my family so I love making dishes that use chicken because I know that they will be guaranteed to go down well with my family. Plus, chicken is so easy to work with. You can’t go wrong with it.

What makes chicken jalfrezi different from other chicken curries is the use of bell peppers, otherwise known as capsicum. Another reason why I love this curry so much is that I absolutely LOVE bell peppers.

I cannot get enough of them. I use them in literally everything from my pizza toppings to my pasta and now my curries. Bell peppers are one of the only vegetables I love to eat all the time.

This curry isn’t too spicy but is still packed full of flavour making this the perfect dinner for the whole family. I know chicken jalfrezi is commonly eaten with boiled rice, but I am more of a fan of eating it with naan or chapatti. It’s up to personal preference and you can choose to enjoy it however you like.

Chicken jalfrezi is a dish that has been voted one of the most favourite curries in the UK. Instead of calling the local Indian takeaway for chicken jalfrezi, make your own with my simple and delicious recipe.

Everyone loves a good chicken jalfrezi and with my recipe, you will be able to whip up a speedy curry for when you have friends and family round for dinner or even on the busiest of weeknights. A culinary triumph for curry-lovers!
