Healthy Father’s Day Curry Recipe

Treat your old man – or yourself – to a healthy chicken Jalfrezi curry this Father’s Day

Are you struggling to come up with good gift idea this Father’s Day? Well don’t worry, there’s no need to buy him another dodgy book – we’re here to help.

All dads like curry, it’s pretty much a fact. So here’s a healthy chicken jalfrezi recipe that is bound to go down a treat, especially if you’re the one it’s for!


  • 2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • 1 large onion (chopped)
  • 4 full chillies (you decide the strength!)
  • 1 green pepper (chopped into thick slices)
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp of tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of turmeric
  • 1 tsp of garam masala
  • 1 tbsp of curry powder
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • A handful of fresh coriander
  • 2 tbsp of Greek yoghurt
  • 100ml of cold water
  • 500g of diced chicken breast
  • 1 chicken stock cube


  1. Heat your oil up in a big pan, before throwing in your onion, garlic and tomato puree. This should be done on a medium to high heat.
  2. Chop two of your chillies up finely (keep the seeds in if you like it hot!)
  3. Add your garam masala, turmeric, cumin, and curry powder into the pan and stir. Cook for five minutes.
  4. Once your onions have softened (don’t let them burn), add your chopped chillies and diced chicken into the pan.
  5. Allow the chicken to cook in the spices for around five to six minutes.
  6. In the meantime, take your two remaining chillies and slice them vertically from top to bottom. *Note* – you only need to pierce them slightly.
  7. Add the chopped tomatoes, pepper, whole chillies, stock cube, salt and pepper, and water. Put a lid on the pan and allow to simmer on a low heat for 20 minutes or so.
  8. Stir in your Greek yoghurt. This will give your curry a bit of creaminess.
  9. Add your chopped coriander and thicken the mixture with cornflour if you need to.
