Jhat Phat Sabzi – Capsicum Paneer

Print version of 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.

    Thanks for the methi tip. The dish looks very delicious.

  • yamini

    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.

    • Pooja

      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.

    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 ??

  • vishu

    Hi sailu, can you please let me know what is kasuri methi powder.

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Its nothing but dried form of methi/fenugreek leaves (menthi aaku).

  • Sushmita

    Hi , when should we add salt ?

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Add towards the end of the cooking process.
