Kashmiri Dum Aloo – Dum Aloo Recipe

Kashmiri Dum Aloo is a Kashmiri delicacy which is now very famous in the Northern part of India. In this recipe fried potatoes are cooked in a rich yogurt based gravy with some aromatic spices, which makes this dish look and taste simply irresistible. This dish is traditionally cooked with baby potatoes, but if you don’t have any (as they are very rare to find in the market), you can also use medium size potatoes by cutting them into halves (which I did), the taste will remain the same.
