Paneer Jalfrezi (Serves 4)

Paneer jalfrezi

“Jalfrezi” this name itself used to make me run away initially. May be it’s the luck I had with these dishes at restaurants, it never pleased my palette until recently I decided to give chef Sokhi’s recipe a try. I love his recipes and has always saved my life with North Indian dishes while I have people over. This recipe is simply superb, its easy to put together and tastes wonderful. Please do give it a try my friends, you are going to change if you have a difference in opinion with jalfrezi like I did…


1. Paneer 200 gms, cut to batons
2. Onion 1 medium, cut strips
