Vegetable Jalfrezi Recipe

My Notes:

  • The vegetables need to be crunchy so don't over cook.
  • As my tomato sauce was slightly sweet, I didn't add any sugar.You can add a pinch of sugar while adding tomato sauce for a sweet tangy taste.
  • You can make thin phulkas and  stuff it with jalfrezi and roll it like frankie.
  • You can add carrots or any other veggie of your choice.Or add chicken pieces too.
  • Adjust quantity of water according to the consistency of the curry.
