Simple Aloor Dom


Bengalis are always very fond of 'peas kochuri' and 'aloor dom' (Dum Aloo) during winter. In Texas, the temparature starts falling as we approach towards the winter time. I already took out light blankets, full sleeves and light sweters. Last weekend 'he' begged me for 'kochuri-alurdom' and here is the result ... ? I have already posted one recipe of 'aloor dom' which we can make for party or any special occasions. But this one, you can eat anyday with 'luchi', 'paratha', 'daalpuri' and very easy to make. Try this in your kitchen and don't forget to share your winter story with us.
