Winters always remind me of Kashmir for two reasons: for the beautiful snow, and the scrumptious food! So this time I decided to make something that would take me on a nostalgic tour. Using Kashmiri red chillies, saunf and dahi, I made Kashmiri Dum Aaloo. This dish uses baby potatoes in a thick gravy and goes well with roti or paratha. It was absolutely delicious, and thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family. Bookmark this Kashmiri Dum Aaloo Recipe and enjoy another gem from our north-most state.
