4large cloves garliccrushed
2tspKashmiri chilli powder
1tspamchur(dried mango powder)
1tspkasoori methi, rubbed between palms(dried fenugreek leaves)
2tbspfresh coriander, choppedto garnish
Slice the peppers and onions into thin strips.
Heat the oil in a large kadai or wok. Add cumin seeds and nigella seeds. Allow to sizzle for 15-20 seconds. Next, add the garlic and ginger. Sauté for about 10 seconds.
Add the tomato purée and stir well. Cook for a minute to take the raw edge off the paste, then add the turmeric, chilli powder, garam masala and ground fennel seeds. Mix and then add the water. Cook the mixture over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring all the time.
Tip in the onions, peppers and add the salt. Stir fry over a high heat for 2 minutes, or until the veggies soften.
Cook the fries according to packet instructions or recipe instructions. I usually cook frozen fries in my air fryer for this dish.
Add the crispy fries to the hot Jalfrezi immediately before serving. Toss well. Sprinkle with amchur, kasoori methi and chopped coriander leaves. Serve at once.
Toss the sauce and hot fries together immediately before serving. Serve right away or the fries will become soggy.
