Kashmri dum aloo recipe

Kashmiri dum aloo is a popular dish in Northern parts of India. In Bengal we have our aloor dum which is a potato dish made in a rich curry of onion – ginger –  garlic etc. Unlike bengali aloor dum, we can say kashmiri dum aloo is a total ‘niramish aloor dum’ as we do not use onion ginger garlic in it.
