"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.

Very tasty

Nicola - Dec 06, 2019

Changed it slightly, made with chicken instead of prawns and put tinned tomatoes instead of fresh. Just not all the juice from tin. Like it a bit more saucy

Pretty good with mushrooms.

Lee - Nov 20, 2019

Very tasty

Jodie - Nov 19, 2019

Deliciously flavoured sauce. I'm not a huge prawn fan so possibly would swap it, but was still nice with prawns. I added some extra veggies such as asparagus and mange tout for extra nutrition which went really well. Would definitely order again as the curry flavour was lovely.

Lovely flavour!

Catherine - Nov 17, 2019

Fantastic.. So tasty!

Aleksandra - Nov 16, 2019

I really enjoyed this curry. Used both chicken and prawns to bulk it up a little. Initially I was a little bit worried about the ginger in it (I’m not the biggest fan) but added it to the curry non the less to see how it would work and I was positively surprised !

Bradley - Nov 15, 2019

Definitely use the creme fraiche for added yum - nice kick to it

Tracey - Nov 14, 2019
