Kashmiri Dum Aloo | Indian Potato Curry

To make this, I have deep fried the baby potatoes in mustard oil. It tastes best when prepared in mustard oil. These golden brown and crisp potatoes are then added to a gravy made with yoghurt, dry ginger powder, fennel and Kashmiri red chilli powder. Then they are cooked in this gravy for a few minutes. Potatoes absorb all the flavours and become tender. Rich and flavourful dum aloo is ready! Serve hot with steamed rice or roti.
