Kashmiri Dum Aloo

On the 1st day of 2nd week in BM#27, I choose very famous Kashmiri traditional Cuisine i.e. “Kashmiri Dum Aloo”. Under this recipe, we used fried baby potatoes with spice and yogurt gravy. I did not add tomato puree in this recipe but it’s optional as per your taste. Kashmiri dum aloo is very famous for red color and rich look, with lots of ghee on the top. They never used garlic and onion in traditional recipe of Kashmiri dum aloo.

You can serve this Kashmiri dum aloo with rice or paratha, very good option for party or dinner time as a main course. This recipe looks beautiful and color come out very well. Everyone know Kashmir is popular for own beauty. If you don’t have baby potatoes then cut the potatoes into large diced form and deep fry. This is my first trial from the Kashmiri Cuisines.

Preparation time: 5 Minutes
Cooking Time: 30 Minutes
Serving: 3 Persons
250Gm Baby Potatoes (not peeled)
2 Tbsp. Oil
1/2 Tsp. Kashmiri Red Chili Powder
1 Tsp. Garam Masala
1 Tsp. Saunth/ Ginger Powder
1/2 Tsp. Fennel Powder
2 Green Cardamoms
1/2 Tsp. Cumin Seeds
Salt to Taste
1/4 Cup Curd
Enough Water
Vegetable Oil for Deep Frying

Prick the potatoes with fork and keep aside. Heat the oil for deep frying these potatoes. Drain out. Combine spices in bowl (garam masala, red chili powder, saunth, saunf) with little as a paste. 
Heat the oil in pan, add cardamom and cumin. When they start splutter, add spices paste and sauté for 2 minutes. Add curd and enough water for gravy. Add fried potatoes and salt. Cover and cook for 5-10 minutes. Garnish with chopped green coriander and serve with hot rice.

Note: You can add tomato puree after spices, it’s completely optional.
