Darbar was a title of honour or respect adopted from Persian and used in the state of Gujarat to refer to a Rajput or Lord of a small Principality. European fashions and designs became increasingly popular with aspiring Indian potentates, especially afterwhen Queen Victoria granted arms to the Princes. This created an increased demand for elaborate furniture, such as thrones, upon which the leading Indian families could display their new symbols of Imperial legitimacy.
Mouthwatering Memories of the delicious Jalfrezi I relished more than two years ago My mouth watered as I looked at this appetizingly colourful dish comprising crisp crunchy tempting panoply of vegetables — onions, tomatoes, capsicum, carrots, cauliflower, beans, green peas, potatoes, green chillies… I placed a generous helping of Jalfrezi on my tongue, closed my eyes…the Jalfrezi was exceptional…the vegetables fresh and crunchy and the distinctive flavoursome, zesty, spicy, sweet and sour taste clearly coming through.
The stir-fry Jalfrezi method of cooking is different from the traditional Indian Curry Recipes. Jalfrezi is not a curry or gravy.
It a stir fry dish which must look colourful and you must be able to identify the various vegetables and meats, if any which be of crisp consistency and taste lip-smacking yummy.
The term jalfrezi entered the English language at the time of the British Raj in India. Colonial households employed Indian cooks who would use the jalfrezi method of cooking to heat up cold roasted meat and potatoes.

Some say that during the Raj, the British created this method of reheating left-overs, especially left-over meats. Others say that Jalfrezi has its roots in the Calcutta region of India at the time of the British Raj.
To put in simple words - Jalfrezi is a simple dish…the Indian version of Chinese stir-fry made with curry spices.
Take a variety of vegetables… onions, tomatoes, capsicum, carrots, cauliflower, beans, green peas, potatoes, green chillies…yes, plenty of green chillies to make it zesty and spicy…cut the vegetables into small pieces…slice a few onions and grate a few onions. If you want to the Jalfrezi to be a bit sumptuous you may add some rich creamy paste - roasted cashew-nut, almond and dry fruit paste.
Stir the mixture till it starts separating from sides of the pan. Now add all the vegetables, chopped tomatoes, sliced onions and slit whole green chillies, stir continuously till cooked crisp and crunchy…the tomatoes will release adequate moisture but should the vegetables stick to the pan you may add a bit of water…not too much… otherwise the vegetables will lose their crispness and crunchiness.
I prefer not to overwhelm my Jalfrezi with too many spices and chillies, but if you like it nice and spicy go ahead. You can make Jalfrezi with your choice of meat too, chicken or mutton, but in deference to the wishes of one of my favourite vegetarian readers who says that I always give Non-Veg recipes this time I have given you the Vegetarian version of Jalfrezi.
Make non-veg Jalfrezi exactly the same way - I prefer boneless chicken or mutton, but the choice is yours.
