King Prawn Jalfrezi4.3/5 (BASED ON 1562 reviews)
"Jalfrezi" comes from the Bengali word “Jal”, meaning spicy and “frezi” meaning fry, hinting at how this curry is different to other styles. In our dry-style jalfrezi, the peppers, onions and tomatoes are quickly stir-fried with the king prawns and then cooked down to create just a little bit of sauce which is spicy and tangy, bringing the 'hot-fry' together very well! A quick alternative to a take-away too!

Our 20 minute recipe
Make some rice
Cook the rice according to pack instructions.
Fry the veg
Heat a little oil in a pan and fry the onions for 5 mins, or until lightly golden.
Add the green pepper and the sliced ginger (if using) to the pan and fry for 2 mins.
Stir in the BENGALI PASTE with a splash of water and fry for 2 mins.
Sprinkle in the MASALA BLEND with 50ml water and mix well.
Add the tomato wedges and stir fry for 2 mins to help them break down a bit.
Add the prawns
Spoon in the GINGER TOMATO PASTE and add 100ml of water. Mix well.
Bring the curry to the boil then reduce the heat to medium and cook for 5 mins. This is quite a dry style curry so don't worry if the water evaporates quite a bit.
Add the prawns and cook for 3 mins (if raw), until cooked through (they will curl up and turn fully pink). If using pre-cooked prawns, just put them in, turn down the heat to low and let them warm up in the sauce for 1 min.
Serve the curry over rice with a dollop of plain yoghurt on the side (if having) to cool it all down.

Lovely with butterflied prawns . Flavour good, however a bit more heat would have been good. Great dish .

Nice and hot added the optional ginger which helped. Pleasant but not quite jalfrezi. Used chicken as allergic to fish, so cooked it a bit beforehand as would take longer than prawns
Connor - Mar 27, 2019
We used diced chicken instead of prawns and it was very good.

Jo - Mar 19, 2019

Easy to follow, not that spicy though. Tasty but could have been hotter .
Alison - Mar 13, 2019
Amazing! Absolutely LOVED this. I used a tin of chopped tomatoes instead of fresh and added a load of spinach towards the end too. One of my favourites!
Rachel - Mar 10, 2019

Could have been a little spicier for me (I like it hot!) but very good flavours. I used chicken rather than prawns which I fried off after the onions.
