Kathiyawadi dum aloo recipe | how to make dum aloo | dahi masala paratha | sabzi and paratha recipe

Kathiyawadi dum aloo spicy and tasty potato-based curry. It is prepared with special garlic chutney mixed into tomato-onion-based sauté with deep-fried baby potatoes. It is a little more spicy and different from regular Punjabi dum aloo. I also share the masala paratha recipe, which is an easy and simple flatbread recipe made with wheat flour, curd and regular spices. Do try this best combo of dum aloo and masala paratha.

The key to making dum aloo and masala paratha at home are
  • For dum aloo always poke the aloos well before frying. This helps potatoes to become spongy and absorbs juices from the gravy and tastes great.
  • I deep fried aloo for the crispy outer layer, but you can also shallow fry it without compromising its taste.
  • The chili-garlic paste gives kathiyawadi flavor to dum aloo. You can adjust its spice level according to your taste.
  • For dahi masala paratha, mix the curd or yogurt, and ensure to whisk it properly so that it gets properly with the dough. also, ensure to use a sour and thick curd for better flavor and taste.
