Kashmiri Dum Aloo
Kashmiri Dum Aloo


The day I make potatoes the girls eat! Really eat well!!
The versatile spud is used in amazingly different ways be it a vegetable or a starter or as a binding agent.
The theme for BM this time was making 3 from one ingredient. I made Country Wedges, Aloo Paratha and now Dum Aloo!
This recipe is from Vaishali’s place the only difference being Vaishali has stuffed the potatoes I have not.
 Also like Vaishali has said this gravy is very rich and creamy. It can be used for any dish that you want to make special. Aloo, paneer, koftas, mix vegetables, anything would taste absolutely rich and delicious.
The girls cleaned the bowl of gravy, cleaned is literally with their roti.
