I couldn't find a Jalfrezi Paste in the supermarket so I found this recipe for one online

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First peel the garlic and ginger.
  2. Put a frying pan on a medium to high heat and add the spices for toasting to the dry pan. (Cumin, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and coriander seeds)
  3. Lightly toast them for a few minutes until golden brown and smelling delicious, then remove the pan from the heat.
  4. Add the toasted spices to a pestle and mortar and grind until fine, or put them into a food processor and whizz to a powder.
  5. Either way, when you've ground them, whizz the toasted spices in a food processor with the rest of the ingredients until you have a smooth paste.
