Maya Kaimal's Jalfrezi Shrimp

Maya Kaimal's Jalfrezi Shrimp

Maya Kaimal's Jalfrezi Curry is our new favorite simmer sauce— its bright flavor comes from tomato, garam masala, and sweet red peppers. We cook it with shrimp and serve with warmed rice— an easy weeknight meal in 10 minutes or less!

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.
