Kashmiri Dum Aloo | Chapathi Side Dish

        Kashmiri dum aloo- a creamy side dish for chapathi,paratha.phulkas.I tasted it once in our friends house ,it was so creamy and so delicious.It was one among many delicious curry, so haven't got the flavors perfectly that time.

       When i saw kashmiri dum aloo recipe in nitha mehta book ,i was super excited to try it.Surprisingly i got a whole bunch of baby potatoes from near by farmers market.I never bought baby potatoes here in US i used to do simple roast with baby potatoes while i was in Bangalore. If you are a baby potato lover then you sure will enjoy this curry for your breakfast,lunch and dinner too.

       The gravy/curry was little spicy because of the addition of  more cinnamon (the book mentioned simply 2 .2 sticks !!! aww that's too much.i reduced it to 2/3 of cinnamon stick,but then also it was spicy).I mentioned as 2 inch cinnamon stick in the ingredients.The process was little long compared to regular potato sabzi, but at the end when you eat with hot phulkas you sure forget all the work you have done for it.
