Mushroom Jalfrezi

Jalfrezi or “dry fry” is an Indian curry in which marinated pieces of meat or vegetables are fried in oil and spices to produce a thick, dry sauce. You can use bell peppers, onions, paneer, French beans, or any of your favorite vegetables.

I always want to try different vegetables, spices & other ingredients in different ways. So yesterday evening when I was with R in the market, suddenly some colorful vegetables came into my eye. This was the first time I found these vegetables in the market in my 1year staying in Marathahalli. While buying the colorful vegetables I decided what I would prepare in the next day lunch. 

I saw the vegetable jalfrezi recipe of Sanjeev Kapoor once in some TV show, so I tried to remember the recipe & modified that with mushrooms.

Hope you like it!

1 medium yellow capsicums
