CHICKEN JALFREZI

This is a zesty chicken curry, simmered in a rich tomato gravy and has spicy undertones of ginger, garlic, chillies and coriander. It's a really simple curry to make, finished off with bell peppers and fresh green chillies to suit your tastebuds. You could make a vegetarian version by leaving out the chicken, and replacing it with a selection of your favourite vegetables.



Serves 4

1kg Boneless chicken, small pieces 

4 Tomatoes, pureed

INSTRUCTIONS


1. Add the onion and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened and starting to turn golden. Add 1 teaspoon of garlic and ginger puree each and continue cooking for an additional 2 minutes, stirring often so it doesn't burn.

3. Add the pureed tomatoes, stir to combine, cover and cook on a low heat for 20 minutes. Now add the ground cumin, ground coriander, bell peppers, grated ginger and the fresh green chillies and stir fry on medium heat for 2 minutes. Garnish with coriander and serve.
