DUM ALOO/SIDE DISH FOR ROTI

   Dum aloo  recipe i wanted to try for a long time and when i saw cute little baby potatoes in the market i bought it without giving any second thought to try Dum Aloo. For this i highly recommend the usage of tomato puree since it gives a great taste and nice colour.

Note.

  2. Add half salt to the potatoes while cooking.
  3. If you are using cream add 2 tblsp of cream.
