King Prawn Jalfrezi, Basmati Rice, Coriander and Mint Raita

A great family fakeaway dish I love how the sharp raita contrasts with the smoky jalfrezi. A firm favourite in this house.

Nutritional Info

Prawns are little powerful bites of protein and chickpeas are even smaller balls of fibre, vitamins and loads of other nutrients. This is a great family dish.
