How to make Chicken Jalfrezi

  1. Marinate the chicken with curd and tandoori masala for 1 hour. (The longer you marinate, the better the taste.)
  2. Grind a paste of roughly chopped onions with green chillies and keep it aside.
  3. Heat oil in a kadhai. Put in shah jeera, green cardamom, laung, dalchini and black pepper in it.
  4. Fry the ginger-garlic paste in it. Then fry the sliced onions till they are golden brown followed by the onion and green chilli paste. Once the mixture is light brown, put in the tomato paste, followed by all the dry masalas.
  5. Fry it for 5 mins and then put in the marinated chicken. Cook it on a medium to low flame and stir it when needed. Pour in water in between to avoid burning. Cover it and cook till the oil separates.
  6. When the chicken is 3/4th done, put in the green/yellow/red bell pepper juliennes. Keep stirring and cooking. Adjust the salt as per taste.
  7. When done, garnish it with coriander leaves and serve with rice or roti.
