What really is a Jalfrezi?

Jalfrezi by V-GIYAN

Jalfrezi is a popular dish that originated in the Indian subcontinent and is now enjoyed around the world. It is a spicy and tangy dish that features protein, vegetables, and a sauce made with tomatoes, peppers, and spices.

The origins of Jalfrezi can be traced back to the British colonial period in India, when the British began to introduce new culinary styles and ingredients to the subcontinent. The dish was created as a way to use up leftover meats and vegetables, and to add some extra flavour to simple dishes. The word “jalfrezi” itself is derived from the Bengali words “jhal” meaning spicy and “frezi” meaning stir-fried, which accurately describes the cooking method used in this dish. The earliest known written recipe for Jalfrezi dates back to the late 19th century, with a recipe appearing in a book called “The Indian Cookery Book” by a British author named Mrs Balbir Singh. The recipe featured chicken cooked with tomatoes, peppers, and spices and was a popular dish among the British who were stationed in India at the time.

Why choose our Vegan Jalfrezi?

One of the main reasons to try Vegan Jalfrezi is that it is a healthy and plant-based meal option. This dish is made with a mix of fresh vegetables such as onions and tomatoes, both of which are rich in vitamins and minerals. By choosing to eat plant-based meals, you can reduce your risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, while also supporting animal welfare and the environment.

Chilli and capsicum are two key ingredients in Jalfrezi that offer a range of health benefits. Both chilli and capsicum are rich in antioxidants, which are compounds that help protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. These antioxidants can help prevent chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s. Chilli peppers contain a compound called capsaicin, which is responsible for their spicy heat. Capsaicin has been shown to boost metabolism and help the body burn more calories, making it a great addition to any weight loss diet.

Further, capsicum has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce inflammation in the body and prevent chronic diseases such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes. Chilli peppers have been shown to improve digestion by increasing blood flow to the stomach and intestines, promoting the production of digestive enzymes, and reducing inflammation in the gut. Moreover, capsaicin in chilli peppers has been shown to have pain-relieving properties. It works by reducing the amount of substance P, a neurotransmitter that sends pain signals to the brain. Wow!

Vegan Jalfrezi is a flavorful and exciting dish that is perfect for those who love spicy food. The dish is made with a combination of aromatics, including garlic, cumin, coriander, and caraway, which are blended to create a bold and spicy flavour profile. The vegetables are then cooked until they are slightly charred and tender, which gives the dish a deliciously rich flavour!

One of the best things about Vegan Jalfrezi is that it is incredibly versatile. It can be cooked with various types of plant-based protein and served with rice or a filling salad.  If you’re worried about not getting enough protein on a plant-based diet, you’ll be happy to know that Vegan Jalfrezi is a great source of protein!
