/ Aloo Dum is one of my recent favourites gravies to go with rotis / pulao. Kashmiri Dum Aloo is a no onion no garlic recipe, a spicy gravy which is apt for the biting cold in Kashmir. The Dum Aloo recipe uses Kashmiri spices like kashmiri red chilli powder,fennel and dry ginger powder.Dum Aloo gets its name because it is cooked under Dum or pressure.
Kashmiri Dum Aloo is quite easy to make as there is no chopping / grinding, you can make the gravy in flat 25mins.Using Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder gives a bright red color to the gravies, I usually use homemade red chilli powder but have kashmiri chilli powder in stock to use for few north indian gravies.While I type this its raining heavily and I wish I had this gravy with phulka now for dinner....yummm combo apt for this chilly weather!
I have tried Dum Aloo
quite a few times to master the gravy as I was not confident in my first few trials and everytime I tried I updated the pics and I should admit Dum Aloo post is the one which had the most reclicks here at SharmisPassions, yes changed the pics around 5 times and the final time I clicked it with the confidence of making the gravy perfectly, hopefully :) I got this recipe from my cousin who watched it in a TV show, then I had my own adjustments and here comes the recipe from my kitchen.
