Creamy Moutabel also called Mutabal is part of the Middle East Cuisine is made from Roasted Eggplant. A delicious way to add in your family’s diet aubergine a very healthy but much-disliked vegetable. Serve it as a part of Mezze Platter or for the Tailgating you host next?
Many a times we order Vegetable Jalfrezi especially if we have a party. Somehow we all love the mixture of vegetable and the beautiful gravy that goes with it.
The other day in a cleaning spree I found this recipe. I had copied this recipe ages ago when we were still in the stage where recipes were copied or xeroxed and not scanned or downloaded or bookmarked, from one of the cookbooks I do not know which one please let me know if this jogs your memory and I will update the source name).
It suited my purpose as it was close to lunch time and I had a little cauliflower, 1 carrot, ½ capsicums, no French beans basically you can add and remove the veggies at hand!
The original recipe asked for grated paneer since I did not have any I used milk with a little salt added to it. It also asked for baking but I skipped that too but the jalfrezi was awesome!
This goes down in my to do list for the next party we host that is in May for Apeksha’s Birthday!
