I do have a weakness for hot and spicy food, whether that be Indian, South East Asian or even a fiery glaze on a piece of chicken or pork… Sometimes the only thing that can hit the spot is some chili!
A chicken Jelfrezi is an ever-present recipe on the British Indian Curry scene and has been as long as I remember. Like many British Indian curries, the Jalfrezi is heavily influenced by Bengali cuisine.
