Dum aloo recipe is one favorite and popular potato based curry. There are quite few versions of dum aloo recipe. Each state has its own way of making dum aloo. Kashmiri dum aloo, Bengali dum aloo to name a few. Small potatoes are everyone’s favorite and it is no wonder dum aloo recipe made with small potatoes are loved by all. Boiled small potatoes are sauteed in oil first. Then it is slowly simmered in a very flavorful tomato cashew based curry to make rich and delicious dum aloo.

When I shared Kashmiri dum aloo recipe here few readers asked for Punjabi dum aloo recipe. In Kashmiri dum aloo the curry is made with curd and loads of spice like dry ginger powder are used. Here in Punjabi dum aloo recipe cashew nut is the star. The curry gets a very rich taste and flavor by using cashew nuts. The texture is also somewhat nutty here.

To make dum aloo recipe I have used whole baby potatoes. I like to add tiny whole potatoes. If you want you halve each potato and use. You can even cut big potatoes into big cubes and add. Here I have fried the potatoes in less oil for long time. I fried them low flame till golden brown. Frying this way takes time but less oil is consumed. Quick and easy way is to deep fry the potatoes. I have adapted Tarla dalal’s dum aloo recipe for making this.

Serve dum aloo with roti, naan or steamed rice.
