Vegetable Jalfrezi4.2/5 (BASED ON reviews)
"Jalfrezi" comes from the Bengali words for “spicy” and “fry”, hinting at how this curry is different. Peppers, onions, tomatoes and baby corn are quickly stir-fried then cooked down to create a little bit of sauce which is spicy and tangy, bringing the 'hot-fry' together. A quick alternative to a take-away!

Our 20 minute recipe
Make some rice
Cook the rice according to pack instructions and keep warm.
Fry the veg
Heat a little oil in a pan over medium heat and fry the onions for 3-4 mins, or until lightly golden.
Add the peppers and the sliced ginger (if using) to the pan and fry for 3 mins.
Add the baby corn, and let them cook in the pan for 2 mins to brown a little.
Make the sauce
Stir in the BENGALI PASTE with a splash of water and fry for 2 mins.
Sprinkle in the MASALA BLEND with another splash of water and mix well.
Add the tomato wedges and cook for 2 mins to help them break down a bit.
Reduce it down
Spoon in the GINGER TOMATO PASTE and add 150ml of water. Mix well.
Bring the curry to the boil then turn down the heat to medium and cook for 5 mins, or until the veg is tender and the sauce is at the desired consistency. If it's too dry, add 50ml more water and stir for 1 min.
Serve the curry over rice with a dollop of plain yoghurt on the side (if having) to cool it all down.

I thought that this was delicious. This is a lot milder than your usual Jalfrezi, but I thought it was a tasty balance of sweet and hot.

The tasts were lost in this meal due to lack of fluids. I will make again to see if there was something I had maybe done wrong.

I added a few more chillies to up the spice. This was lovely. Nice and light.

Delicious taste - would have given it 5 if the sauce was thicker.

Surprisingly spicy! We absolutely loved it. Added paneer instead of baby corn for extra protein
