A melange of veggies, flavourful and spicy perfect for any day cooking.
If you have tried googling what jalfrezi means, it says that a type of Indian Chinese cuisine that involves marinating meat and fish in spices and tomato sauce. But here is my take on jalfrezi, where I have used cauliflower, beans , Capsicum and onions. They are blended with tomato puree and spices to make a spicy side dish for chapati/rotis. This is not as complicated as the name suggests and can be made in 30 mins , which makes it an ideal dinner recipe. It is loaded with vegetables and kids who are fussy about eating veggies love it too. This recipe canned made using other vegetables like carrots and peas. Paneer is also be added , just see the notes at the end of the recipe on how to include paneer here.If you are adventurous enough to make your own paneer , try my recipe here. It is easy and very spongy without the after taste of lemon. Do try it today and make dinners more interesting and healthy . Happy Cooking !!
1.5 cups Cauliflower , chopped into florets
1 cup French Beans , cut into 1 inch long
1 cup Tomato Puree *
2 medium Onions , cubed
1 Capsicum , cubed
1 Green Chilli , slit
1 Red Chilli
2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon Oil

1 tablespoon Kasuri Methi
1 teaspoon Turmeric Powder Organic
1 tablespoon Ginger , grated
1/2 teaspoon Hing
Salt to taste
Water for soaking
2 tablespoons Coriander leaves , for garnishing
Note - For tomato puree , i have used pre made puree. If using homemade tomato paste, use 3 medium tomatoes and blend it to a puree. Add a tablespoon of tomato ketchup to authenticate the taste.
Paneer can be used in this recipe too. If using paneer , cut them into cubes and shallow fry them. Add them at the final stage so that the panner does not get chewy.
Immersing gobi and beans in boiling water ensures that the veggies are still crisp.Steaming will make the veggies mushy.
