Vegetables Capsicum Curry

Vegetable Jalfrezi

A right blend of sweet and sour!
Vegetable Jalfrezi is the combination of Mughal and Punjabi dishes. The great thing about this curry is the slightly sweet and sour flavor from the peppers.
I learned it from Chef Menu Rani Chellam and her recipe became a huge hit in my family. Thank you Aunty for sharing this recipe. Vegetable Jalfrezi is a colorful dish and kids will love it. Paneer cubes adds more taste to this dish. If you have colorful capsicums at home, then give it a try. You will agree with me!
