Serves 4

Ready in about 1 hour

Low-calorie cooking spray
1 onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp chilli powder
750g skinless chicken breast fillets, cut into thin strips
2 each of red and yellow peppers, deseeded and thickly sliced
400g can chopped tomatoes
200g passata with onions and garlic
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp ground coriander
350g dried basmati rice, to serve
A small handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped, to garnish
1 red chilli, deseeded and thinly sliced, to garnish
Lime wedges, to serve

1. Spray a large frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Stir-fry the onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes, or until softened.

2. Mix the turmeric and chilli powder together in a large bowl, add the chicken and toss well. Transfer the chicken to the pan and lightly brown for 6-8 minutes.

3. Stir in the peppers, tomatoes, passata and dried spices. Cover and simmer gently for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding a tablespoon of water if the mixture appears too dry.

4. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the packet instructions and drain well. Spoon the jalfrezi into serving bowls and sprinkle over the coriander and chilli. Serve with the rice and lime wedges.
