Pot with Lid


Cook the Rice
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium and cover with the lid.
  • Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pot from the heat.
  • Keep covered for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Get Prepped
  • Meanwhile, halve, peel and chop the shallot into small pieces.
  • Halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into 2cm chunks. 
  • Cut the tomato into 1cm chunks.
  • Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).
Fry the Veg
  • Place a (separate) large pot over high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Add the chicken, chopped pepper and half the chopped shallot . IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Fry until chicken is browned all over, 5-6 mins. Stir occasionally.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging we use to keep it fresh.

Simmer the Sauce
  • Reduce the heat to medium-high.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, harissa paste and chicken stock powder.
  • Cover and simmer for 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • When 2-3 mins of cooking time remain, stir in the garam masala and ½ tsp sugar (double for 4p).
  • Taste and season with salt, pepper and sugar.
Make the Raita
  • While the curry simmers, mix the diced tomato, remaining shallot and yoghurt together in a bowl. 
  • Mix well then season to taste with salt and pepper.
Garnish and Serve
  • Fluff up the rice with a fork and divide between bowls. 
  • Top with the chicken jalfrezi.
  • Serve the cooling raita alongside. 
  • Garnish with a sprinkling of chopped coriander.
