Indian restaurant chicken jalfrezi

Indian restaurant chicken jalfrezi is a pretty spicy curry. If you want to keep things milder, roll back on the kashmiri chili powder and don’t eat the green chilies. You need to leave them in because the green chili flavour. But you can eat around them. If you haven’t read the blog post about Indian restaurant curries at home, do that before you start cooking.
