Aloo dum

Aloo dum is a very famous traditional Bengali vegetarian recipe it's called Dum aloo also in Hindi. Which is especially a very favourite dish of mine. It's also very easy to prepare and taste so good that I always end up by licking my plate. It's a dish with which every Bengali person is very familiar.

In Bengali families, it's usually prepared on weekends and holidays and usually served with freshly made puris or parathas.

This dish is very close to me cause my mother always make this for me and that has a heavenly taste. She used to make this on weekends on occasions when any non-veg foods aren't allowed. But this simple dish can beat any non-veg recipes.

I never need to learn it from my mother cause whenever she prepares it I always help her, so automatically I have learned this recipe.

powder. Mix everything well and cover the pan, let the potatoes cook properly for 6-8 minutes. As the potatoes are cut in big pieces it would take some extra time to cook nicely.

• After 6-7 minutes check the potatoes if it's properly cooked or not, if not then again cover the pan and cook it on a medium-low flame for 3 to 4 minutes. The potatoes need to be nice and golden in colour. When the potatoes are properly fried remove it from the oil. And when you are removing it, strain the oil properly so that in that oil you can make the gravy. Using the same oil gives a nice flavour in the gravy.
