Veggie Jalfezi

Vegetable Jalfrezi:
Bell Pepper-1 Red Onion-1 Tomato-1 Paneer-1/2 cup Zucchini-1 Green chillies -3 Lemon - 1/2 To temper Jeera-1 tsp Oil - 1 tbsp
Heat oil in wok preferably, it gives more room to add all the vegetables. Add Jeera once the oil is hot and saute Onion, Green Chillies slit, Tomato, Zucchini and Bell Pepper( the options are endless, quickly run through your fridge).Sprinkly a pinch of sugar to it. It helps the vegetables retain the color and texture.  Add salt and saute till they are partially cooked. Slice the paneer pieces and continue sauteing. You may add any masala powder of your choice now or completely skip. I add a little chilli powder to it to make it extra spicy. Squeeze the lemon and remove from heat. Garnish with Coriander leaves. This can be had as a dry side dish for roti, parathas. Or add Garli toast cubes and have it as salad bowl.
