I am re-posting a different version of Aloo’r dom that I posted sometimes back together with “Koraishutir Kochuri”. This one is called “Hing diye Niramish Aloo'r Dom”. This Dum Aloo recipe is perfect for any day, whether you have it with daily meal or served in party menu. Hing Diye Aloo-r Dom is a much simpler version of the classic Dum Aloo, perfectly goes with any kind of poori, parathas, luchi or Pulao.
Since no onion or garlic is used in this preparation, it is called “Niramish”. There are many recipes in Bengali Cuisine that starts with the phrase 'Niramish' and it means onion and garlic can’t be used in those recipes. There are many ways to cook Dum Aloo, but each recipe is different from the other one, in terms of ingredients, spice and way of cooking. Unlike north Indian Dum Aloo, this version is not rich, but comforting, light and simple.
Tiny little potatoes are coated with asafoetida (hing) and cooked slowly with other spices and tomato sauce. Hing / asafoetida is the key ingredients that makes this dish super yummy! Though I have tried and posted other Dum Aloo recipes on my blog, for particular this one, I'm very much thankful to my one of friends .
