We all love eating some curry and fried vegetables based dishes when we feel hungry. When it’s time to gulp down some main dishes at dinner times, we often order or prepare some stomach satisfying meals along with some side dishes. These dishes include lots of spices, meat varieties, sauces, chutneys, and wheat bread to go along with our other national words. Asians love to keep their options between their meals, and curry-based foods are one of them.
While talking about Asian cuisines, we will also mention a great in-demand dish that is loved by every spice and curry lover around Asia. It’s a dish that was originated in Bengal and famous throughout the Indian Subcontinent that was first found in the cookbooks of British India, Chicken Jalfrezi Dish.
Chicken Jalfrezi was initially made when the leftover foods were cooked with chili and onion. The stir-frying of ingredients within the recipe was a technique that was introduced by Chinese Cuisine. Merging all the steps into one, the dish was formed to satisfy every spice lover to this day. In 2011, a survey proved that Jalfrezi was rated the most popular dish in UK Indian and broader South Asian restaurants.
So as we know enough about the start of this fantastic dish, let’s come to our main concern, which is cooking this dish PAKISTANI STYLE. We all know that the original dish is always twisted and compromised with other techniques as well when it reaches other regions. In such a case, we are going to share a recipe that our dear Pakistani cooks love to use while preparing chicken Jalfrezi recipe.
