Ingredients

  • 800 g Chicken boneless
  • 50 ml Vegetable Oil
  • 3 Bell Peppers/Shimla Mirch
  • 2 Onions/Pyaz finely diced
  • 4 Tomatoes chopped
  • 5 Garlic Cloves/Lehsan crushed
  • 1 inch Ginger/Adrak crushed
  • 1 tsp Salt/Namak
  • 2 tsp Chilli Powder/Laal Mirch Powder
  • 1 tsp Turmeric Powder/Haldi
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder/Dhaniyaa Powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder/Jeera Powder
  • 2 Green Chillies/Hari Mirch finely chopped
  • Coriander/Dhaniyaa finely chopped

Instructions

  • In a large pot heat up the vegetable oil on medium heat until hot
  • Add the finely diced onions and salt then cook for 3-4 minutes until the onions are slightly softened – adding the salt with the onions helps to bring the moisture out of the onion to allow them to cook down and brown more evenly without burning the onions
  • Add the crushed garlic cloves, crushed ginger and chopped tomatoes then cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes soften
  • Add the chicken pieces into the pan and cook for 6-8 minutes until the colour of the chicken changes
  • Add the chilli powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder and coriander powder then cook the spices for 4-6 minutes adding a few tablespoons of water to prevent the spices from burning
  • Add the finely chopped green chilies and chopped bell peppers before covering with a lid and cooking for 15-20 minutes until the bell peppers are soft
  • Remove the lid and add the finely chopped coriander then cook for 1 minute until the oil has separated – the oil has separated when there are small bubbles appearing and the oil has formed a thin layer on top
  • Your chicken jalfrezi is ready!
