Now there is nothing more delicious and easy to make than aloo dum. It can be enjoyed with rice, rooti, paratha, poori you name it and you got it :)
My 2 favorite ways are one to serve it with dahi vada as chat and the other one is with plain white rice.
- Potatoes: 2 large boiled
- Tomato: 1 large finely chopped
- Onion: 1 Medium
- Onion: 1 small finally chopped
- Ginger : 1 inch
- Garlic: 6-8 cloves
- Cardamon : 2
- Cinnamon: 1/2 inch stick
- Bay Leaves: 2
- Turmeric Powder: 1 tbsp
- Red Chilli Powder: 2 tbsp
- Cumin Powder: 2 tbsp
- Coriander Powder: 1 tbsp
- Slat as per taste
- Oil: 2 tsp
Make a fine paste of ginger, garlic and medium onion
Peel and break (don't mash they, just break into uneven pieces) the boiled potatoes, sprinkle 3/4 tsp of turmeric powder on the peeled potatoes and mix. You can skip breaking them up if using small baby potatoes.
In a pan heat oil and fry the potatoes till golden brown and remove from heat.
In a kadhai or large pot heat oil, add bay leaves and let it cook for few seconds.
Add chopped onion and fry till golden brown.
Add the ginger, garlic and onion paste and cook till the raw smell is gone.
Add the chopped tomato, chilli, cumin, coriander and rest of the turmeric powder.
Add salt to taste.
Cover and cook till the tomatoes are mushy, remove the lead and cook till the oil is separated.
Add the potatoes, stir gently to coat potatoes with masala.
Add 1 cup of water, reduce heat and simmer the potatoes for another 5 minutes or till the desired consistency is achieved.
Grind cardamon and cinnamon into a powder.
Serve it with rice, rooti or pratha and enjoy.
In another post I would explain how to enjoy dahi vada in Cuttack street style.
Till then Happy Blogging
