“Dum Aloo”, just the name evokes the tasty sensations of spicy deep fried baby potatoes floating about in a creamy tomato gravy, perfect to eat with rice or Roti. Now, coming back to reality, I wasn’t about to start deep frying anything, specially the baby potatoes I did not have! So, I took the gorgeous spice base and some air fried sweet potato chunks to make this delicious dry Dum Aloo dish. I used my favourite Garam Masala and mopped it up with simple flatbread.
