"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!

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

Not very flavourful, not like an authentic Jalfrezi. Tastes more like curry from a jar.

Jodie - 30th August 2020

This was great. Amazing jalfrezi taste but without the insane heat. Still hot but some indian restaurants overdo it and this got the balance perfectly.

Jessica - 30th August 2020

My partner didn’t want prawns so I used chicken instead, adding earlier than you would do the prawns to ensure it was cooked

Massive portion size. Could well eat on its own without rice. I used a variety of peppers and added one red chilli to give it an extra kick. No need to thicken the sauce as the softened tomatoes does it for you. Great taste and do easy to make.

Husband's favourite so far and I really enjoyed making it. Would order again. I would recommend having a naan bread or similar with it.
