Jalfrezi dishes are popular recipes served in many Indian restaurants. So there is baby corn jalfrezi, vegetable jalfrezi or Paneer jalfrezi in the vegetarian category. I have read that jalfrezi dishes originated during british rule in west bengal region of India.

The baby corn jalfrezi recipe is easy and basically is stir-frying the veggies and then slow cooking them in the tomato puree. You can also add paneer or tofu in this dish. I have used green bell pepper but red or yellow bell peppers would equally look good and taste also good in this dish.

You can have this baby corn jalfrezi with rice or naan or roti or paratha.
