Dum Aloo without Yogurt

Potatoes

                   Dum Aloo is a North Indian dish typically prepared in different style in Punjab, Kashmir, Bengal and many other states. This one I prepared has a Kerala touch, but no, this dish is not popular here. But anyone who loves cooking, picking up new tastes and bringing smiles to loved ones can prepare this at home very quickly. As name suggests, Aloo or Potatoes are cooked in Dum ie potatoes are slowly cooked in covered pot with lots of spices. And these Potatoes will take the flavors of all these delicious spices. So lets get into the recipe..

Ingredients:

  1. Baby potatoes : 1/2 kg ( see note if baby potatoes are not there )
  2. Grated coconut : 1/2 cup
  3. Onion medium : 2
  4. Garlic : 3 pods ; grate them
  5. Ginger : 1 inch ; grate them
  6. Chilli powder : 2 tsp
  7. Turmeric powder : 1 tsp
  8. Coriander powder : 2 tsp
  9. Garam masala : 1/2 tsp
  10. Black pepper powder : 1 tsp
  11. Salt : to taste
  12. Fennel seeds : 1 tsp
  13. Bay leaf, Cardamom, cloves , cinnamon stick : 1 each
  14. Oil : 5 tbsp & enough for frying
  15. Curry leaves : a few

Method :

  1. Boil potatoes with salt in a cooker for 2 whistles. Dont over cook it. Remove skin
  2. Fry these cooled potatoes in oil so that all sides slightly hardens. Keep aside once finished
  3. Put all ingredients from 2 to 13 in a blender and grind to a coarse paste.
  4. In a heavy bottom pan, add 2 tbsp oil and put both the paste and potatoes together and give it a mix. Cover with lid and cook in low flame for 5 minutes
  5. After 5 min, remove lid and let it cook so that all water is gone. Then put 3 tbsp oil and curry leaves and cook again for another 10 min with lid closed. Stir in between so that its bottom doesnt stick
  6. Remove from flame when everything looks beautifully brown!

Note :

  • If baby potatoes are not available, you can dice normal ones into cubes (like I did here)
