We normally make curries fm scratch fm madhur jaffreys book using lamb shoulder but this requires at least 2.5 hrs cooking time. Today we didn't have the time so made this chicken jalfrezi not expecting it to b as good. How wrong we were, fab little recipe full of spicy flavour, we only used 350 gms of chicken thigh but kept to the same quantity of rest of ingredients except salt (1/2 tsp). Browned onion,chicken,garlic,grated fresh ginger then sprinkled chicken with turmeric,cumin,coriander added toms,salt,2 dried chillis chopped instead of powder and the ghee (u can use butter) then covered n cooked on low for 45 mins, if it loOks Abit watery reduce sauce by removing lid, we added small bunch fresh chopped coriander (cilantro)right at the end of cooking. Served with basmati rice, elephant chapattis warmed (fm local paki shop or asda) and sharwoods mango chutney for nice sweet fruity accompaniment.Yum
