Vegiterian Recipe: Dum aaloo
HOW TO PREPARE : - Grate the onion and keep
it aside. Beat the curd (yoghurt). Take all the spices and dry grind it
together till it’s a fine powder. Peel the potatoes and take a fork
and prick it nicely and on all side. Pour the oil in a pressure pan and
put the potatoes inside and fry them in oil till they turn golden brown
and set aside. Put the fried potatoes on paper to absorb the extra oil.
Take another pan and pour some oil and bring to heat. Then add the bay leaves,
asafoetida, ginger garlic paste, grated onion and sauteacute; till the
raw smell leaves. Slowly the paste will turn a dark brown. This will give
the gravy its colour and so let it be a nice dark brown. Add the mixed spice
powder we made. Sauteacute; for a minute and add turmeric, chilly powder
and salt. Sauteacute; for a minute till the smell of the spices fades and
an aroma begins to rise. Add the milk and then slowly stirring continuously
add the curd. Now add the fried potatoes. Pour water if required and pressure
cook it for five minutes. Ensure that you take it off the flame before the
first whistle blows.
