Stuffed Kashmiri Dum Aloo

The only dish that gives strong competition to the Punjabi Dum Aloo is the rich and subtly spiced Kashmiri version of it!

Stuffed baby potatoes with soft paneer, cashews, raisins and coriander and simmered in a creamy flavourful yoghurt gravy makes it resemble the snowy landscape of its origin.

Add buttery Naans and parathas to complete the table in authentic Kashmiri style!
