  • Boil 800 ml water with 1 tspn salt and 1 tspn sugar. Remove from burner and add beans, carrots, peas and baby corn to blanch.
  • After 3-4 minutes, take off the vegetables from water, leaving the water in vessel.
  • Heat the same water for 2-3 minutes and then add mushrooms to blanch for 3-4 minutes. Remove mushrooms from water.
  • Heat 2 tbspn oil in a pan, and add chopped ginger and garlic and saute for a minute.
  • Add onion and capsicum. Saute on high flame for 3-4 minutes. Add mushrooms and saute again till all water is drained. Add the remaining vegetables and saute it again for 2-3 minutes.
  • On another stove heat 3 tb spn oil and roast onion paste till golden brown. 
  • Add tomato paste and roast it till for 4-5 minutes stirring continuously.
  • Add the sauted vegetables to this masala. 
  • Add pepper powder and subji masala and mix it on high flame for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add tomato sauce and mix it well.
  • To give the burnt tandoori flavour to the curry, slightly displace the kadhai/pan from heat, take a spoonful of vegetable in porous/slited steel laddle and keep it on flame for 30 seconds. Mix this back in kadhai and take another spoonful of jalfrezzi. Do this 3-4 times.
  • Mix the jalfrezzi again, transfer it in a serving dish.
  • Garnish it with grated cheese, paneer and serve hot.
