Paneer Jalfrezi with Roti Breads (veggie)

Recipe Description:

Tikka masala’s 20th century origin as a British-Indian twist on Punjabi butter chicken is widely known, but jalfrezi’s Anglo-Indian roots stretch back further, to the days of the Raj. Indians would stir-fry the leftover meat from British roast dinners back to colourful life with chilli and garlic (‘jhal’ means ‘spicy-hot’ in Bengali), adding liquid to moisten, and this simple ‘curry’ quickly caught on with diners back in the UK. Today’s jalfrezi uses similar techniques, but we’ve sent you much fresher ingredients! Green pepper is essential, while our crispy fried paneer provides the dish with a buoyant, perky, sauce-absorbing main attraction.
