Vegetable Jalfrezi

Vegetable Jalfrezi

Vegetable Jalfrezi is a celebration of colorful vegetables sautéed to perfection in a medley of spices. This flavorful stir-fry typically includes an assortment of vegetables like bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, and corn, all tossed in a thick and fragrant sauce. The term "Jalfrezi" itself suggests a technique of stir-frying with spices, and this dish truly exemplifies that art with its bold color and taste. While Jalfrezi is renowned for its spicy profile, I've introduced a twist to this classic by incorporating a sweet curry powder. This twist adds a touch of sweetness that beautifully complements the inherent heat of the spices. The result is a Vegetable Jalfrezi that retains its characteristic spiciness but with a unique and well-rounded sweetness.

More About This Recipe

Like most Indian mains, this is a great dish to make ahead of time and reheat when ready to eat. When you reheat it, simply mix in a little bit more water as the sauce will have thickened.
