"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

  • 1.

    Bring 250ml of water to the boil in a lidded, non-stick pan and then add the rice. Stir gently, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low, then let it simmer for 10-12 mins.

  • 2.

    Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and when hot, fry the onions for 4-5 mins, so they soften and start to colour. Add the green pepper and the sliced ginger (if using) to the pan and stir fry for 2 mins. Stir in the Bengali Paste with a splash of water ands fry for 2 mins. Sprinkle in the Masala Blend and add 50ml water and mix well. Add the tomato wedges and stir fry for 2 mins to get some colour on them and help them break down a bit.

  • 3.

    Spoon in the Ginger Tomato Paste and add another 100ml of water. Mix well. Bring the curry to the boil then reduce the heat to medium and let it simmer for 5 mins. This is quite a dry style curry so don't worry if the water evaporates quite a bit.

  • 4.

    Put the prawns in and let them cook for 3 mins (if raw). If the prawns are pre-cooked, just put them in, turn down the heat to low and let them warm up in the sauce for a minute before serving. Serve the rice in bowls with the King Prawn Jalfrezi curry on top. Serve with a dollop of plain yoghurt on the side (if having) to cool it all down.

Claire - Aug 10, 2018

Tasty but a little too spicy for my liking

Elaine - Aug 09, 2018

A bit more liquid than expected, I think due to the peppers. If I were to cook again I'd griddle the peppers before adding to curry.

Fran - Jul 31, 2018

A nice easy tea that still feels like a treat! So much better than a takeaway!

Lyndsay - Jul 06, 2018

Janine - Jul 03, 2018

Very hot and we like our food tasty and spicy. Used 3/4 of masla pot spice and was still hot. Think would be better if left a day.

nicola - Jul 02, 2018

This dish was really salty

Anne - Jun 20, 2018

I added tin toms and used chicken! It was delicious. Only used half of hot stuff as too hot for us! Wish you labelled what was hot and reduce it by so much for different heat strength

Susan - Jun 11, 2018

Yummy tummy yummy. I did add the yogurt at the end which I think made the difference. It was delicious ????

Danielle - Jun 07, 2018

Too spicy

Stephanie - Jun 07, 2018

Nice sauce....goes well with paneer instead of prawns

Kerry - Jun 04, 2018

A warning that using prawns straight from frozen make it really runny might be handy!!
