Aloo Dum(Baby potatoes in spicy gravy)

5-6 Baby potatoes

1 onion (ground to paste)

1 tsp jeera

1 tsp red chilli powder

1 tsp garam masala powder

1 small tomato (ground to paste)

2 tbsp plain yoghurt (curd/dahi)

a bunch of finely chopped coriander leaves

a pinch of sugar

salt to taste

oil for frying


Boil & peel baby potatoes.

In a pan,heat 2 tbsp oil & add jeera seeds to it. Add the peeled baby potatoes(whole) into the pan & fry till all the sides turn golden brown.

When the potatoes are done, remove from pan & set aside.

In the same pan, add the onion paste & saute till it changes colour. Add the dry masalas & saute for a few mins. Take care not to burn the masala. Add the tomato paste & cook on low flame for a few mins. Then add the beaten yoghurt & cook on low heat for 2-3 mins.

Add salt to taste & a pinch of sugar. The sugar helps bring down the sour taste of the tomato & yoghurt.

Now add the potatoes,turn off heat & coat the potatoes with the gravy. Cover for a few mins for the potatoes to absorb the flavour.

Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.

Serve hot with roti.
