Dum Aloo from Indian State Jammu and Kashmir

Dum aloo is a potato-based curry dish. Dum means slow-cooked, and aloo is potato. It is a part of the traditional Kashmiri Pandit cuisine, from the Kashmir Valley, in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. Dum aloo is cooked widely in India and Pakistan. There are also Banarasi and Bengali variations.

The potatoes, usually smaller ones, are first skinned and deep fried. Kashmiri dum aloo sauce is made with yogurt or khoya, and often includes a cashew nut paste. The Banarasi variation sauce is made from tomatoes and onions. Spices such as red chilies, garlic, ginger, cardamom, and fennel are added to the sauce. The potatoes are cooked slowly at low flame in the sauce, and can be garnished with coriander. Dum aloo is often paired and served with naan.
