Zesty Tomato-Potato Dum || Dum Aloo

Dum Aloo is a popular Indian dish made with boiled and deep-fried baby potatoes that are cooked in a flavorful spiced tomato-based sauce. The potatoes are first boiled and peeled, then coated in a mixture of besan (chickpea flour) and spices and deep-fried until golden brown. The sauce is made by sautéing onions, ginger, and garlic, and then adding a mixture of ground spices, tomatoes, and water. The fried potatoes are added to the sauce and simmered until the sauce thickens and the flavors have melded together. Dum Aloo is often served with rice or roti and garnished with fresh coriander leaves. It can also be served with a side of raita or yogurt to balance out the spiciness of the dish.
