Baby Corn Paneer Jalfrezi Recipe

Baby Corn Jalfrezi with Paneer makes a perfect stuffing for kathi roll or serves as a great sidedish with rice and dal or with simple veg pulao. I love such simple flavourful combos...I have tried paneer jalfrezi with carrot and capsicum long back.I was sure this would be sure shot hit at home as both paneer and baby corn are our favourites so thought to try it right away after seeing it in a north indian cookbook.

You can try jalfezi with any vegetables of your choice and name it vegetable jalfrezi :) .You can make vegetable jalfrezi/ paneer jalfrezi / chicken jalfrezi just modify according to your liking.According to Wikipedia, Jalfrezi is a type of curry which involves frying marinated pieces of chicken or any meat or vegetables in oil and spices to produce a dry, thick sauce.

Jalfrezi is great as stuffing for kathi roll or frankie....I served with soft phulkas for hubby and I had it as stuffing for frankie.You can even use readymade wraps, stuff it with jalfrezi then warm up and serve it, works great for on the go breakfast / snacky.
