Kosha Aloor Dom / Bengali style Dry Potato Curry


Aloor Dom is a very good old Bengali recipe which can never go wrong with anything. You can serve this Bengali style dry Potato curry with Luchi / Porota / Kochuri / Pulao / Fried rice and what not. It tastes heavenly. I made Lachha Parathas to go with it. The recipe of Aloor dom is very easy in which potatoes will be cooked in onion tomato based gravy along with a special ground masala and yes, this freshly made ground spice is the main key to create the authentic taste of Aloor Dom. In winter grocery market will be filled with baby potatoes, this recipe will become more attractive if you can use them. Being a Bengali it is my pleasure to share this particular recipe with all of you lovely folks. It's time for you to enjoy the recipe with video.
