  1. Cube the paneer and set it aside. Chop the onions, carrots, capsicum length wise and set it aside. Grind 3 tomatoes in a mixer to a pulp. Chop the remaining 1 tomato in length wise and set it aside. 

  2. First heat the pan with half of the oil, add the cubed paneer and fry in oil till they are slight golden color. Remove the fried paneer pieces from pan and set it aside. Now add the remaining oil, and add cumin seeds. 

  3. When the cumin seeds become brown color, add the sliced onions along with pinch of onion and saute them till they are transparent. Add the ginger-garlic paste and saute for 10 more seconds. Then add the tomato puree to the pan. You can also use canned crushed tomatoes which will give a nice color. 

  4. Then add chopped carrots and add 1/2 cup of water and close the pan with a lid and allow the carrot to cook. When the carrots are half-cooked, add capsicum to the pan.

  5.  Add the red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and salt and cover the pan with lid and allow the capsicum to cook till they are tender. Then add the cubed paneer along with chopped tomatoes to the pan. Allow the gravy to boil for 5 more minutes.

  6.  By this time, the gravy would have become thicker. If not, just keep the flame low and allow it to become thicker. Finally crush the kasoori methi and add it to the jalfrezi and also garnish with coriander leaves.
