Jhat Phat Sabzi – Capsicum Paneer

Capsicum Paneer Sabzi

A jhatpat sabzi with nutritious ingredients, capsicum and paneer. Appealing to the eye and the palate, this super quick, utterly simple stir fry is lightly spiced and makes a good side with phulkas or a filling for a wrap/roll. You can even add a few tablespoons of thick coconut milk towards the end of the cooking process to give it a rich flavor. Whatever you do, use kasuri methi aka dried fenugreek leaves which gives oodles of flavor to the paneer.

  1. Dear Sailu can u tell me how to make paneer at home. We r staying in Singapore, so tell me whether to use uht or fresh milk for making paneer.

    1. Even I stay in Singapore. You can get Amul taaza Paneer…or Paneer is also avbl at Little India Arcade…at the sweet shop there. You can also try making it at home…uht milk also works….boil the milk till its nice and hot and then add few drops of lime juice in it…so that the milk cuddles. Then drain this water and tie the remains in a cheese cloth or any other cloth for few hrs. What u get is set paneer.

  2. Hi Sailu,

    I tried cooking this recipe and made all preparations but at the end i realised that paneer was tasting bitter. What could be the reason…does paneer always taste bitter ??…is there any way to get rid of the bitterness in paneer ??

  3. Sailu Garu,

    This recipe is awesome. It is simple and easy to make and goes very well with roti. I also used this as a filling to make paneer puffs for a party at home….it was a hit :).

  9. Its a lovely dish and it looks beautiful ! Need to take care while frying the paneer so that it doesnt become too hard .,,, so for me the dish took quite some prep time .. but it was worth it !

  10. Hi Sailu,

    Heat ghee in a vessel, add cubed paneer and saute for 2 mts. Remove from vessel and place in warm water for 3 mts, drain and keep aside… in this step , do we need to put paneer in warm water????

  11.

  13. Tried it out today n turned to be yummy. My daughter who us usually a very fuddy eater was asking for more !!! Loved the recipe.

    1. Add salt to the capsicum… Also add salt to the warm water so that there is salt inside the paneer too…also you can prick the paneer cubes a bit to make them seep in salt…:)
