Aloo Dumwale

As many of you know, I post a lot of soups,cookies and desserts rather than Indian dishes.Its not because I don't like or I don't cook the cuisine at home.In fact, Indian cuisine IS one of my favorites and I do cook a lot of Indian food at home. But I make very simple dishes like dal chawal and nothing out of the ordinary.My Indian cooking skills are average if I were to rate them.But this year I want to cook more Indian dishes.
I really was amazed when I went through Sanjeev Kapoor's website that even though I was born, brought up and ate Indian food all my life, I barely knew the dishes and their names.It was embarrassing to some extent.I have a lot of adoration for North Indian especially Punjabi and Mughlai food.For North Indian food,I completely rely on friends,at least for more complicated dishes.South Indian, I can manage and believe I am decent in it.Although you have to check with my husband on that!!
Recipe: Sanjeev Kapoor
On to the recipe, with some minute changes!

3 Potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 Small Onion, chopped
2 Cardamoms (Seeds from the pods)
1 tbsp Ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp Cumin Coriander powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
2 tbsps Cashewnut paste (I soaked a couple of tbsps of Cashews in water and blended them into a fine paste. Just use 2 tbsps and eat the rest:D)
1/2 cup Tomato puree
1/2 cup Yogurt, whisked
1 tsp Kasuri Methi
Fresh cream for garnish
Salt
2 tbsps Oil +to deep fry

  • Heat oil in a pan for deep frying and fry the poatoes until lightly browned
  • Place the fried potatoes on a paper napkin to drain the excess oil
  • With a tablespoon of water, boil chopped onion with cardamoms
  • Grind into a paste
  • Heat 2 tbsps of oil and add the onion paste
  • Cook till the fat starts to separate and add ginger garlic paste
  • Stir in chilli powder, cumin-coriander powder, turmeric powder,cashew paste , tomato puree and yogurt
  • Mix them well and add the deep fried potatoes
  • Add 2 1/2 cups water and salt to taste
  • Simmer it for about 10 min and stir in the kasuri methi
  • Garnish with fresh cream

Lots of love,
