Dum Aloo - Reposted

Dum Aloo 

Baby Potato cooked in Yogurt sauce with onion and other spices.

By mistake i picked baby potato bag instead of regular potatoes, and i noticed it only after coming home. And when i was thinking of what to do with them, i got remember sanjay saying,  by mistake he went to Kashmir in his Dum aloo video, and decided to make dum aloo.  For this recipe the main ingredient is Fennel Powder, but i dont have it handy, so i decided not to use it. So it may not taste traditional way, but we enjoyed it.
