Dum Aaloo

Hi Everybody. It has really been along time since I did something posting.. but now I made this Recipe from Tarla Dalal. I bought some baby potatoes and wanted to make something new. So I searched the net and found this one. This is very easy to make and is very very tasty.


Tomato ------------------------------------- 2 or 3 medium size
Onion --------------------------------------- 1( as I don't use garlic I use onion instead)
Kashmiri red chilly ---------------------- 7 or 8
Saunf (fennel seeds) ---------------------- 1 tsp
Jeera ( Cumin) ----------------------------- 1 tsp
Ginger one inch piece
Broken Cashews --------------------------- 1 Tbsp
Water ---------------------------------------- 2 1/2 cups

Cut the tomatoes and onions into slices and along with all the other ingredients put them in a kadai and add 2 cups of water simmer over medium fire and cook till the tomatoes and onions are fully cooked. Keep aside and let it cool.The remaining 1/2 cup water is used to remove the gravy sticking in  the Mixie jar.
Once this has cooled down grind it to a fine paste and keep aside.

Baby potatoes ------------------------------ 15 to 20
Boil and peel the potatoes and let it cool. If you don't have Baby potatoes you can use normal potatoes. Boil peel and dice it. Now comes the yummiest part.we are going to deep fry the potatoes and keep this in a absorbent paper.

Now we are ready to prepare the Dum Aaloo

Cardamom ------------------------------- 7 or 8
1 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves ( Grind it to a fine powder)
Butter ---------------------------------------- 1 Tbsp
Oil ------------------------------------------- 2 Tbsp
Cream --------------------------------------- 3 Tbsp
Honey --------------------------------------- 1 Tbsp
Salt To taste

Add the butter and oil in a kadai. once it is hot add the Cardamom( If  you want to add powder add it after you add the gravy) Then add the gravy and mix well. Simmer till oil separates from the gravy. Add the powdered Kasuri Methi fried potatoes,honey and salt and mix well .Simmer for 3 to 4 minutes.Garnish with Coriander leaves and serve hot with Parathas,Phulkas or Chapati.
