[Anglo-Indian, leftover meat fried in a dry sauce of chiles and onions, perhaps from colloquial Bengali jhālpharezī : Bengali jhāl, hot, spicy (from Middle Indic *jhāla-, perhaps from a dialectal variant of Sanskrit kṣāra-, burning, hot; see dhegwh- in Indo-European roots) + Hindi and Urdu parhezī, forming part of a diet, abstemious (from parhez, abstention, from Persian parhēz, verbal noun of parhēkhtan, to abstain, from Middle Persian pahrēxtan, from Old Iranian *pati-raič- (attested in Avestan paiti-raēč-, to leave behind) *pati, against, opposite + *raič-, to leave; see leikw- in Indo-European roots). Alternatively, Anglo-Indian ultimately from Bengali jhāl, hot, spicy + Persian farēz, dried meat, peeling, shaving.]
