Paneer Jalfrezi – Easy Paneer Recipes

November 19, 2018 Paneer Dishes  No comments

Paneer Jalfrezi is a simple and delicious sabzi variety to go with roti, naan or paratha. It is a semi-dry dish, more like a stir fry with full of flavours. Though Paneer Butter Masala is my all time favourite, this has become a recent favourite too, may be because of the simplicity in making it. No grinding or any long procedure involved. All u need are a few ingredients and this can be made in 15-20 mins. This can wrapped in roti/chapathi and served as a perfect lunch for kids/adults. Recipe with video..

Here is the video..
