Dum Aloo with step-by-step photo and video recipe.

This Bharwa Dum Aloo recipe is very simple in which small potatoes are stuffed with spices and can be cooked for your daily meals, unlike Shahi Dum Aloo Recipe which is usually stuffed with paneer and dry fruits.

I have learnt this recipe from my MIL and it’s a favorite at home. Though she cooks it in a pressure cooker, I prefer my clay pot for the same. You can try any method as you please, as per the time you have in hand.

For Bharwan Dum Aloo Recipe, the small potatoes are stuffed with unique spice mix, that are cooked in spicy, tangy and creamy onion-tomato gravy.

It makes for a great lunch/ dinner with some roti, paratha or puri. I like it even with jeera rice.
