  • Chop the tomato into small size pieces.
  • Heat the oil in a kadai; add all tempering, fry for a second.
  • Now add the grated ginger and jalapenos, fry for a second.
  • Then add the chopped tomatoes and a pinch of salt and fry for 2 minutes.
  • Reduce the stove heat into low.

  • Now Paneer capsicum fry is ready to serve.
  • Serve hot with Steaming rice, Pulka, Naan, Kashmiri Pulao

  • I like this dish to be very spicy. So adjust the spice level according to your taste.
  • If the dish turns out too spicy, add   little lemon juice.
  • I compeletely made this into south indian version. If you want to make this like North Indian version, just add garam masala, and cream .


  1. Does adding alone Kashmiri chilli powder makes it spicy? Thought it is less spicy. Adding chilli powder to the paneer before frying makes it taste better.
