Dum Aloo is a delicious preparation of potatoes. This is easy to prepare and a mild rich dish. This dum aloo is different from Kashmiri dum aloo.
Potatoes plays very important role in our Indian cooking. This is one of the most loved vegetable starting from kids to adults. However because of the high carb factor this is not recommended for diabetic patient. Well it has many health benefits also. Especially given to kids who wants to gain weight. This is a rich source of potassium.
When we make aloo or potato dishes, its prepared in many ways and the preparation method varies from each other and so also the taste. If you will read the Kashmiri Dum Aloo, its completely different from this North Indian Style Dum Aloo. Again on fasting days in India, many places they make Aloo Tomato which is a light gravy dish and without no onion & garlic in this. So that’s how it’s different and superbly delicious. The gravy in this recipe is normally thick, smooth and with a creamy texture because of the cashew nuts added. This is a vegan dish. You can also add almonds along with cashews.
Again it’s cooked in combination with almost all vegetables, like Aloo Gobi,Aloo Matar, Aloo Tomato, Aloo Bhindi, Aloo Parwal, Aloo Baingan, Aloo Simla etc etc. Its added in biryani, tehri or pulao for additional taste. Its stuffed inside breads to make sandwiches, bread rolls, bread pakoda; stuffed in side flat breads Aloo paratha. The list is so long. Its such a versatile vegetable. It gives a completeness to our appetite. Don’t really know why. But the sad part is it promotes weight gain when you eat in excess. So those who love to be in shape have to keep their potato love away 🙂
