Hello everyone 

If you don't want to have regular fries or curry dish to accompany your lunch and also not willing to have too much spices yet wants something delicious which can be prepared in minutes and tempting too. Then this is surely for you. Dum aaloo is a dish which is prepared in different way in different parts of country. I have dry version of dum aaloo today which is equally tempting and extremely easy to prepare with minimum spice . This can be served as morning/evening snacks with tea too. Recipe is given below, hope you will love it.


Serves: 3-4
Time: 20 mins


5-6 medium potatoes, boiled
1 medium onion, finely chopped 
1/2 cup green coriander leaves, chopped 
2-3 green chilies 
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp asafetida (heeng)
Salt to taste


Peel and cut, boiled potatoes in big cubes. Make paste of coriander leaves and green chilies together. Now heat oil in a wok, add asafetida and cumin seeds. Let it crackle then add chopped onion. Let it fry till golden then add cubed potatoes and fry on high flame for 2-3 mins. Now add cumin powder, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste,coriander chili paste and salt. Fry it for another 5-6 mins on medium flame or till potatoes are well coated with masala and get nice golden spots on it. 

That's it.... Your yummy dry dum aaloo is ready to serve either with dal rice combo or with tea itself. It also tastes best with piping hot paratha or poori. 

You can increase or decrease quantity of green chilies as per your taste.

This is simplest yet yummiest potato recipe you can try. Hope you all will definitely give it a try. Please pour your valuable comments and suggestions here they meant a lot.
