    Fresh or tinned plum tomatoes is best?

    It is impossible. To make a curry without pre cooking the chicken this will disappiont any one wanting a curry that resembles your local takeaway

    Good recipe I just add one green and one red bell pepper to the mix and it's the perfect Jalfrezi. Tastes great..

    I like the recipe, but as a tweak, for some added texture, I added cauliflower towards the end of the simmering process so as not to get it mushy, and then at the end added some heavy cream for a creamy texture, it made all the difference in terms of bringing out the flavors. I know its a big departure from the original, but give it a try and see what you think.

    Quick, simple and very, very tasty. My daughter says it's the best curry I have ever made.
