Healthy Chicken Jalfrezi Recipe


  • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 4 full chillies (you decide the strength!)
  • 1 green pepper (chopped into thick slices)
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Handful fresh coriander
  • 2 tablespoon Greek yoghurt
  • 100 milliliter cold water
  • 500 grams diced chicken breast
  • 1 chicken stock cube


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan and then throw in your onion, garlic, and tomato puree. This should be done on a medium to high heat.
  2. Chop 2 of your chillies up finely (if you like your curries hot, keep the seeds in the seeds in).
  3. Add the turmeric, cumin, garam masala, and curry powder into the pan and stir, cooking for 5 minutes.
  4. Once your onions have softened, add the chopped chillies and chicken into the pan.
  5. Allow the chicken to cook in the spices for around 5-6 minutes.
  6. In the meantime, take your 2 remaining chillies and slice them vertically from top to bottom (you only need to pierce them slightly).
  7. Add the chopped tomatoes, pepper, whole chillies, stock cube, salt and pepper, and water. Cover the pan and leave it to simmer on a low heat for 20 minutes or so.
  8. Stir in your Greek yoghurt. This will give your curry a bit of creaminess.
  9. Add your chopped coriander and thicken the mixture with corn flour if you need to.
