Vegetable paneer jalfrezi recipe, Vegetable jalfrezi

Vegetable paneer jalfrezi/ Vegetable jalfrezi is a semi dry flavorful Indian curry consisting of stir fried veggies and paneer in sweet, tangy and spicy sauce. This is one such popular and delicious curry that goes well with roti/ phulka and jeera rice. Jalfrezi curry can be made with just veggies like carrots, beans, capsicum/ pepper or just with paneer and sometimes with chicken too which I have not tried making but have heard from friends about it.

This is my all time go to curry since 8th grade as this dish is loaded with veggies and has an excellent flavor unlike usual curry. In few restaurants they use orange food color which I have not used instead used good color tomatoes and good quality and color chili powder to attain natural color which I think is healthy. In this recipe I have used very less number of paneer as the curry focuses on vegetables so if you are planning to make panner jalfrezi then you can use more paneer along with green and red capsicum. Do try this restaurant style jalfrezi at home and let me know your feedback. So let’s get to the making of Vegetable jalfrezi!
