Paneer Vegetable Jalfrezi

Chicken Jalfrezi – had been one of my restaurant favourites, so after meeting The Foodie I obviously gave the vegetarian version a try. And the outcome seemed easy to prepare home. So when I had my family visiting me I gave this recipe a try. And all loved it and hence its here :)

Chopping and finely cutting the vegetables is one of the major task for this restaurant special dish. And I love chopping the veggies – a bit Chinese style. So overall if the veggies are cut, the whole process of preparing is quite simpler.

  3. Follow with capsicum and carrots and later with tomatoes.
  4. Let it cook, Add all the dry masalas and sauté for couple of minutes. Add Salt.
  5. Follow with paneer and ketchup. Now cover and cook.
  6. Do not overcook as the vegetables and paneer should not get mushy.
  7. Once done, garnish with coriander leaves.
