Paneer Jalfrezi | Easy Paneer recipes

So i am slowly settling down to my routine, after a hectic travel, schedule. After my Mixed vegetable curry , i reserved few veggies to make paneer jalfrezi, i should admit that this is first time i tasting the recipe, quiet different from the usual stuff, its neither like  mixed vegetable curry nor like gravy, and masala's along with vegetables and paneer were definitely hit.

So making paneer jalfrezi is easy and i loved the curry completely because it has loaded with vegetables, peas, corn.Every Bit of the curry i could taste the paneer and loads of vegetables. I realized why i love paneer, because how ever you cook, it produce the best test, Without further delay ..off to recipe.

Note: 

  • Adding the vegetables according to the cooking required time, if it takes time add those veggies first.
  • Add the paneer finally and do not cook completely let it be half cooked with spices of masala's which taste best.
  • I do not have normal baby corn so added the sweet corn, if u do want you can omit.
  • Also I prepared my own tomato puree , you can try store bought one too.
  • Make sure paneer and vegetables are in equal ration so that u take paneer and veggies in every taste. 
  • Also Cut the vegetables in to long strips so that it will take less time to cook
