Dum Aloo

Once my brother bought Dum Aloo from frozen section in an Indian store. I liked the taste so much that I wanted to reproduce it at home. I noted down the ingredients from the box and came up with this recipe. I must say I was pretty impressed with the way it turned out. Everybody at home liked it, especially my brother. Here is the recipe:


10 baby potatoes
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp kasuri methi
Cilantro to garnish

For Masala paste:
1/4 cup peanuts
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp poppy seeds
2 tsp fennel seeds
2 tbsp coconut fresh grated
1 small onion
1 tbsp coriander cumin powder
1 1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 cup tomato puree
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 serrano pepper or green chillies
salt as per taste

Peel and prick with fork on baby potatoes. Boil them in salted water until they are tender. Drain and fry them in little oil until they turn slightly golden brown.

Slightly roast peanuts, sesame seeds and poppy seeds. Take them into blender and add the rest of the ingredients for masala. Blend them into a fine puree.

Heat 2 to 3 tbsp oil in a pan and add cumin seeds, let them splutter and then add the puree, salt and let it cook until oil seperates. Now add the boiled baby potatoes, kasuri methi and let it cook for five more minutes and turn off the heat. Garnish with cilantro and serve with either roti or rice.
