Spicy & Tangy Aloo Dum

Today I am going to share a simple but popular Indian dish which is my favourite one. I have customized the dish little bit, hope you will also like it. Though Aloo dum has its own flavor but I have added little spice and tanginess into it which makes it more rich in taste.

Spicy & Tangy Aloo Dum


Baby potatoes - 400g
Onion - 2 big, chopped
Ginger paste - 2 teaspoon
Green chilli - 3-4 chopped
Red chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
Dry mango powder - 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 2 teaspoon
Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon
Tomato - 1, chopped
Salt to taste
Turmeric  powder -  2 teaspoon
Sugar - 1 teaspoon
Bay leaf - 1
Coriander Leaves - handful, chopped
Cumin Seeds - 2 teaspoon

Asafoetida - a pinch

1. Wash the potatoes and put them in pressure cooker with water. Allow one or two whistles and release
the pressure by holding it under the running water.      
2. Now after cooling peel the skin of the potatoes. 
3. Heat mustard oil in a pan and add the baby potatoes, fry it very well with salt and turmeric powder. 
4.  Now put a bay leaf in to the oil and add the sliced onions into the oil. Fry it till it takes golden brown 

5.   Add ginger paste and green chillies, stir it very well. Now in a bowl take cumin powder, coriander 
powder, red chilli powder, dry mango powder, turmeric powder and make a paste adding water. Add 
this paste to the pan and mix well.

4.       After that, add the chopped tomato and little sugar later to balance the acidity of tomato.

5.       Pour water and cover it for 10-15 minutes.

6.       Check the consistency of the gravy, if it is little thick you can switch off the gas, garnish with 
chopped coriander leaves.
