Dum aloo is a Kashmiri dish which is mostly cooked in every household and it pairs best with some roti or naan. Sometimes I get confused what to cook curry for rotis because gravy based curries taste awesome with naan and rotis and this Kashmiri style aloo dum comes to rescue. This can be made in two versions like frying potatoes or be boiling method. Mostly for this curry baby potato will be used to make and rich onion tomato paste will give a rich flavour and taste.
