Directions || How to make Chicken Jalfrezi

Prepare all the ingredients and keep ready
Heat 1 oil in a pan, add onion cubes
Sauté until the onions turn soft and a light brown around the edges.
In the same pan, add green, red and yellow capsicum and saute them well for 2 mins.
Remove them from pan and set it aside.
In a cooking pot, add oil.
Add chicken cubes ,ginger garlic paste and fry for a minute until fragrant and mix it well with chicken again
Cover and cook the chicken for 10-12 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through
The chicken will let out water while cooking so the dish shouldn’t burn but keep an eye on it every 3-4 minutes by giving everything a good stir
Once the chicken is cooked, uncover and cook on a medium flame a few more minutes.
Now add all the spices – coriander, cumin powder, chilli powder, garam masala, turmeric ,green chillies – and fry again for a minute until they turn fragrant.
Take care not to burn the spices at this stage by keeping the flame low
Now add the tomato paste (if using) as well as tomato ketchup
Mix well, add ½ cup water, and cook for a minute
Check in between to give the curry a stir and keep heat to medium- low.
The gravy should be thicker by now and not watery (which is what we want)
Add salt and stir, check the taste to see everything is balanced well.
Add fried onions and capsicum and mix it well with chicken gravy.
cook for 5 mins on medium flame before removing from the heat
Serve chicken jalfrezi hot with rice or rotis
