"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.

    Make some rice

    Cook the rice according to pack instructions. 

  • 2.

    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. 

  • 3.

    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. 

  • 4.


    Serve the curry over rice with a dollop of plain yoghurt on the side (if having) to cool it all down.

The spiciness is good but I just think it's bland, no amazing flavours come through, can really only taste the slight heat and not much else. A bit disappointing.

I was not excited by the flavour; I added fresh chillies but it still didn't have that Jalfrezi kick.

Ashlee - Oct 11, 2018

Love this. Amazing flavours and so easy to make- all for under 500cals! Certainly tastes a lot more calorific and a treat x

Anna - Oct 11, 2018

Really lovely, will order again

Debra - Oct 06, 2018

Sauce nice and spicy but needed thickening up a bit. Added yogurt to half of it for milder version for kids.
