Dum Aloo (Indian Potato Curry)

After trying this popular Indian potato curry in a creamy and delicious spiced yogurt gravy, I wondered why I had never tried preparing this dish at home….well that’s not until last week.  It is known to be popular in the Kashmiri region.  Knowing how much my husband loves potatoes, I knew this would be a treat for his taste buds.  The authentic way of cooking Dum Aloo is to cook it under pressure.  The edges are sealed with a dough to ensure that no steam escapes, but naturally I took a short cut 🙂
