Indian Style fish jalfarezi

Healthy Fish Jalfarezi

Ingredients
1 tilapia fillet fish cut into small pieces (coat with a little corn starch, lemon juice, red chili powder, salt and set aside)
1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped ginger
2-4 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 onion cut into squares
1/2 red and green bell pepper cut small
1 small chopped tomato
1 fresh green chill cut in 4 pieces (add more for more heat)
1/2 tablespoon garam masala powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Juice of half lime
little finely chopped cilantro
2-3 bay leaves
few black peppercorns
1 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro (to garnish)

Method

  1. In a large wok or frying pan, heat the olive oil and then shallow fry the fish until it starts to brown and set aside. Remove the fish on a platter.
  2. Add some more oil to the same pan and add the bay leaves and whole black peppercorns and let them sizzle. Add the chopped ginger and garlic. As they start to sizzle, add the onions, tomatoes, green/red bell pepper and green chili and add the fish back to the pan. Give this a quick stir. The peppers should be cooked but still fresh and crispy.
  3. Add the salt, black pepper and garam masala and mix gently. Squeeze lemon juice, garnish with cilantro and serve immediately.

Note: For vegetarian jalfarezi, you could add paneer pieces instead of the fish.
