Vegetable Jalfrezi

This is a no-brainer, as long as you have some time, these ingredients you should be, as how they say in Taco Bell, good-to-go.


  1. Vegetables, a lot of them (Potato, Carrot, Bell Peppers, Onion, Tomato, Green peas, Cauliflower, Broccoli etc)
  2. Green Chilli - 4 nos.
  3. Garlic - 4 cloves
  4. Ginger - same amount as Garlic
  5. Jeera (Cumin) seeds
  6. Red Chilli Powder
  7. Dhaniya (Corriander) Powder
  8. Turmeric Powder
  9. Salt
  10. Oil - 1 tbsp
  11. Garam Masala Powder (or any Jalfrezi mix. I used 'Khana Khazana')
  12. Water - 2 tumblers

  1. Cut vegetables into cubes (as shown above) and keep them aside
  2. Add oil in a pan and add cumin seeds
  3. Add onion, green chilli, ginger, garlic and fry till it changes color a bit
  4. Add the bell peppers, tomato and saute` the mixture a bit
  5. Add rest of the vegetables
  6. Add all the above mentioned powders in any order as you desire
  7. Sprinkle 1/2 tumbler of water and mix everything together
  8. Reduce the flame to medium and close the pan with its lid, keep mixing it every 5 minutes by adding water as needed
  9. In 20 minutes, this is what you get...

A very nice, easy to make sabjhi for Roti's, Peas Pulav, Tacos.
