      This recipe deserves a whole sky "flooded" with stars! I made this for lunch this afternoon and everyone who had it says they want to have it for dinner too. I made it equivalent to 4 servings. I did use the tomato paste but the tomato slipped my sight. Generally, vegetable jalfrezi is a favourite with me, now my mom and brother say that this one's a favourite with them:) Thank you for the fabulous recipe. Will make it many many times!!

      Very good recipe. :) I was going to post this recipe and found yours (I always do a search before posting). Very similar to what I make only I add the ginger garlic to the marinade and marinate for 2 hours. Also I saute 1/2 cup of onion paste in a little oil till golden brown and add 1/2 cup of tomato puree(instead of using tomato paste) to this and cook for 10-15 mins and keep aside. I then add this to the sliced onions when they are being sauteed. I use 2 tsp of my garam masala which contains cumin and coriander. The rest of the method is the same. I just felt I could give you my version of Chicken Jalfrezi. We enjoy this dish a lot too. I serve it normally with Indian bread. Fay
