dum aloo recipe based on onion tomato gravy with some fresh yogurt.This recipe is more gravy type than normal dum aloo recipe which is onion and garlic free and this one is too good for both roti and rice varieties.

I already shared dum aloo recipe in bengali style which is more based on tomato and there is no ginger and garlic and it is made along with some fresh peas.This recipe is different from the other one and here we are using both onion and garlic and i love the consistency of the recipe.You have to make freshly ground masala or roast your spices and made the masala for better results.
