Dum Aloo (Baby Potatoes in Cashew Nut & Yoghurt Gravy)

Its Sunday!!!! holiday and jollyday...and time to try a new recipe....Last week, while buying veggies, (one of my favorite pass time!!) I saw a bag of small small baby potatoes. I like them any way, that too fried and I remember my mother a lot.

This Dum Dum Aloo, was a very very tasty recipe. Creamy, rich and just fantabulously gooey....
The minute I served this on the plate, my hubby licked and gave me a hi - fi. That says the taste is just perfect.
And trust me it just turned out sooper dooper.

You will need:

To Grind:

  • Yoghurt - 1 cup
  • Cloves - 2
  • Cinnamon - a small piece

  • Black Cardamom - 1 (optional)
  • Ginger & Garlic Paste - 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp

How to go about it:
