Dum Aloo or Baby Potatoes in a Creamy Gravy is a classic Kashmiri dish made with baby potatoes in a creamy yogurt and cashew based curry. This is probably the only dish I love with baby or new potatoes in them. This dish is both comforting while using simple ingredients but tastes like a lot has gone into it
What is ‘Dum’ you ask? Well Dum translates to cooking with steam on a low flame. The potatoes are flash fried in a way and par cooked, these are then further slow cooked in the yogurt cashew curry so that the potatoes soak in all the flavours and spices.
You may think that this is a spicy curry, based on the chilli powder that goes into it, however Kashmiri Red Chili powder is only mildly spicy but the colour it gives any curry is beautiful.
Serve this Dum Aloo with steamed basmati rice or steaming hot rotis.
