Bengali Style Aloor dum | Aloo Dum Recipe | Bengali Style Potato Curry - In North-India, Aloo Dum is made in different styles in different regions but I personally like the Aloo Dum recipe made by Bengalis. It tastes very well with Loochi and Radha Bhalabhi. Dum Aloo is also served in Bengali weddings as a special dish.

People tend to relish Puris if served with this delicious Aloo Dum.

Tips

Potatoes:

Cut the Potatoes into four pieces and pressure cook them till you get one whistle and cool them completely.

Do not over cook the Potatoes as they become mashed during cooking. Fry the Potatoes till they turn golden brown so that the curry tastes good.

Curry:

  1. Bengali style Aloo Dum is generally a thick curry and does not have gravy in it.

  2. Bengalis generally use Mustard Oil to make this but you can use any other Oil as per your preference.

  3. Freshly ground Ginger, Garlic and Green Chilli paste gives a good taste and fragrance to the curry.

  4. Curd should be properly beaten or else it becomes lumpy while cooking.

  5. Bengalis usually add Sugar to any recipe they make but I have not used. You can add it after you fry the Onions.
