How to make Dum Aloo

  1. Wash the potatoes which are reddish in colour.
  2. Take the pressure cooker and boil them till 2-3 whistles blow. Peel them with a tooth pick and make a hole in it but don't break it.
  3. Now take a pan, put in oil and deep fry them first for 10 mins on a high flame. Then lower the flame and cook till it turns dark brown in colour.
  4. Now take a pan, heat oil. Add all the kada garam masala and sabut lal mirch as well. Now add the dahi with all the masala which you have kept aside.
  5. When you start boiling the aloo, take a bowl put in the dahi, all dry masalas like haldi namak mirch, both kashmiri and normal mirch saunf. Saute and put aside till they are deep fried.
  6. Now now add the kashmiri, garam masala, tikki. Stir for 5 mins.
  7. Now add the aloo, put in 1/2 glass of water and let it boil for 5 mins. For the next 30 mins, keep it on a low flame and let it cook while stirring.
  8. Let it cook till the oil separates and it's dense. (If you like add sukhi kasuri methi as well)
  9. When it's done serve it hot with rice.

My Tip:

Deep fry on a low flame and cook 1 day before the occasions, it will enhance the taste best of this Kashmiri dum aloo.
