KASHMIRI DUM ALOO


This is a traditional recipe from Kashmir, baby potatoes simmered with yogurt and spices. This curry tastes better when cooked with mustard oil or desi ghee (clarified butter) . It is a perfect party dish and can be served with rice or rotis. Potatoes are liked by one and all made any which way.. all time favourite.

Ingredients:
Baby potatoes .. 1 kg
Kashmiri red chillies ... 6-8  (soak in warm water and grind them to a paste)
Yogurt ..... 2 cups
Clove powder .. 1/4 tsp
Aniseed / saunf powder .... 2 tsps
Dry ginger powder / saunth .. 1 tsp
Green cardamom powder .. 1/2 tsp
Roasted cumin powder ..... 1 tsp
Red chilli powder .. 1/4 tsp or more if you like it spicy
Asafoetida .. a generous pinch
Salt .. to taste
Oil ... as needed to fry and cook. (use mustard oil or desi ghee )



Method:



1. Boil the potatoes until half done. Cool and peel them.






2. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the potatoes until golden brown. If you are using a little bigger sized potatoes, prick them with a fork.





3. Mix the ground chilli paste , spice powders ( except asafoetida) and salt with the yogurt.





4. Heat a little oil in a pan and add asafoetida. When you get the aroma, add a cup of water, little salt and bring to a boil. Stir in the yogurt with spices and mix well.
