About Dahi Aloo Recipe:

A delicious preparation of baby potatoes (aloo) sauteed in spices and added to a thick curd(dahi) gravy. Spicy crushed potatoes dunked in a tangy yogurt curry – that’s my favorite Dahi Aloo for you! At my home, mom made dahi aloo whenever we were bored of eating the same veggies. This was a great change to our usual meals and we really relished it. It’s such a simple curry.

It has few ingredients but the flavors really shine through.
