This isn't something we would eat at home, but it is one of those restaurant favourites that everyone wants to cook. Jalfrezi really refers to the cooking style rather than the dish. Broken down it translates to 'jal' or 'jaldi' which means quick and 'frezi', which is to fry.
So it's a quick fry dish that is made with a fresh, simple tomato sauce and cooking it yourself means you can make it much healthier than the oily take aways. I like it because it has personality, it's big and bold, it doesn't take much cooking, but boy it really packs a punch!
This is a lovely quick dish to do for a weeknight evening meal. Wonderful when served with a bowl of plain basmati rice.
