Kashmiri Dum Aloo


From my childhood, almost in every bengali wedding I have seen the famous combo of 'koraishutir kochuri' and 'kashmiri aloor dom' in the menu card. There is no question about that combo, it tastes heavenly. This dish is no onion and no garlic recipe but the attraction is its nice red color. You will need different types of spice powder for this recipe. I don't know much about kashmiri cuisin, this was my first try and I just nailed it ? . I served this curry in dinner with some 'jeera rice' and 'his' reaction was ??... Try this in your kitchen and I truly wanna know about your family's response.
