Dum Aloo || Punjabi Dum Aloo || Restaurant style Punjabi Dum Aloo

Punjabi dum aloo is tasty, flavored gravy recipe prepared  with baby potatoes. Aloo/Potato is one of the favourite veggie to all and it's kids favourite. It's been long time I did not prepared aloo recipes at home so thought to buy it, found these baby potatoes in Wednesday market @Jolarpet. Half part of it I prepared Potato fry(will post recipe ASAP) and remaining dum aloo Punjabi style. We all regularly prepare potato fry at home. Try this Punjabi style dum aloo for any occasions and grab your guest attention, as it is very tasty and very flavourful. 

  Punjabi dum aloo and Kashmiri dum aloo recipes looks very similar but the difference is - in Punjabi dum aloo we use tomato and cashew nuts paste where as it's not used in Kashmiri dum aloo. Wait for time I will post Kashmiri dum aloo too ASAPπŸ€—πŸ˜.  For this dum aloo we use baby potatoes, if you donot find it in your area you can also use normal potatoes by cutting it into half πŸ˜‹.Just donot miss the taste of the recipe because of that reason 😁😍.

* You can also use poppy sedds (gasgasalu) to prepare gravy. 

* You can also fry tomato along with onions and prepare gravy  paste. 


** You can deep fry boiled baby potatoes to get crispy taste.

** Do not forgot to poke potatoes, it makes potato obsorb the gravy inside the potato. 

** Adding masalas in oil(step - 9) will gives the gravy good taste and restaurants look to gravy. Keep flames low so that masalas(red chilli powder.. ) do not burn. 

** If you do not find baby potatoes then no problem cut large potato into pieces and use. 

** Using butter will give good taste and texture as it is Punjabi dum alooπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹.
