Vegetable Jalfrezi comes to my rescue when my family has not eaten their weekly portions of fresh veggies. A combination of sauteed veggies and spicy masala, Vegetable Jalfrezi becomes an ideal main course veggie for lunch or dinner.
I love stocking up veggies in the refrigerator. And as my kiddo loves eating paneer, I even make sure to store it. The other day, I had bought fresh capsicums, cauliflowers, and farm fresh carrots.
I was dying to use them and that’s when the idea of making finger-licking Vegetable Jalfrezi hit me. So without wasting any time for brainstorming, I instantly took out some frozen peas, paneer and added them to the motley of veggies.
Can you believe it, piping hot, delicious Vegetable Jalfrezi was ready within no time! Not only the dinner for the day got sorted, but my family loved it so much that they wished me to make it every week for them.
You can savour Vegetable Jalfrezi with Pudina Lachcha Parathas or Naan. They taste super delicious with Vegetable Jalfrezi. But, if you are a big rice fan then relish Vegetable Jalfrezi with a plateful of Zeera Rice, they both taste equally yummy!
