"Cooking well does not mean cooking fancy." Julia Child

The refrigerator light goes on...

If you walk into a curry shop in London, Jalfrezi recipes will be the cornerstone of most menus. As such, recipe variations are wide and varied. Most do contain jalapeno peppers and you can use them if you like spicy food.

The simple combination of garlic, onion, spices and tomatoes works so well - just as it does in so many cultures. Use chicken or lamb, but paneer or vegetables make for a great curry too.

The best part is that there is so little to do with this dish, and it's a single pot so clean up is a snap.
