Dhum Aloo

This is another recipe I tried last week after reading the recipe from a tamil magazine. It came out pretty well. Check this out..

  1. Potato - 4 (if its big ; 7 to 8 if its small) Chop it into cubes
  2. Tomato - 2
  3. Onion - 1
  4. Red chillies - 4
  5. ginger - Garlic paste - 1 tsp
  6. Cumin - 1 tsp
  7. Cardamom - 1 (powder it finely)
  8. clove - 3 or 4 (acc to taste)
  9. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  10. Chillies powder - 1/2 tsp (acc to taste)
  11. Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
  12. Salt to taste
  13. OIl - 1 tsp
  14. coriander leaves - 2 tsp
First cook the potatoes adding a pinch of turmeric powder and salt. Put holes in the cooked potatoes using fork and keep it aside. In the mean time, grind tomato, onion and red chillies along with salt (required only for this and chilly powder and not for potato) in to a fine paste. Pre heat oil in a pan, splutter cumin, when its done, add ginger garlic paste, powdered cardamom, cloves and stir it for a minute. Now add turmeric powder, chillies powder, coriander powder and saute' for a second. Now add the grounded paste with a little amount of water. Add the potatoes to it. Let it cook for another 3 to 5 mts. Garnish it with coriander leaves. This is a wonderful side dish for chapathi, poori or even for rice...
