Sharing here few Points to be taken care while making Kashmiri Dum Aloo…

  • This recipe does not have any Onion or Garlic in it.
  • Size of potato should be medium . Neither tiny baby potatoes nor that big sized potatoes. If not available , one can cut regular sized potatoes into bigger pieces.
  • Like other recipes , this curry don’t need so many varieties of spices.
  • Kashmiri Dum Aloo is spicy and sour in taste. I have used Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder . This measurement was perfect for my family , if you prefer more spicy , increase the quantity of red chilli powder.
  • Caraway Seeds, Ginger Powder, Fennel Powder are very flavourful and will give beautiful texture and amazing taste to the dish. Don’t avoid.
  • Before curd, whisk it so well else it may curdle while cooking.
