How to Make It:

  • Heat half the oil in a pan and on low heat, lightly fry the paneer until golden brown on all sides. Drain and set aside.

  • Add the remaining oil to the pan then add cumin seeds and kalonji.

  • When the cumin seeds splatter add the sliced onions.

  • When the onions turn translucent, add ginger-garlic paste. Saute until fragrant comes.

  • Add chilli powder, coriander powder and turmeric powder. Fry but take care not to burn the masala.

  • Add the crushed canned tomato, carrots, and capsicum. Mix well and top up with one more cup of water.

  • Boil and then cook covered for 3-5 mins .

  • Add paneer and cubed tomato, mix them well, and simmer for another 3-4 mins. The gravy would become fairly thick by now. If too watery, cook a bit more until thickened.

  • Now add the kasuri methi and garam masala. Mix properly, add salt and remove from flame.

  • Serve paneer jalfrezi hot with chapatis, pulao, or rolled up with a wrap or roti.

N.B. You can use fresh pureed tomatoes (about 2 cups) instead of canned tomatoes. Also, if you’d don’t want to make vegetable jalfrezi, omit the paneer and add more vegetables like beans, baby corn, etc.
