Easy Recipe-Dahi Aloo

Dahi Aloo is an easy recipe that my mom taught me. Its very easy to make and comes out tangy and delicious. It goes very well with puri, or fried Indian wheat bread.


2 tbsp oil

4-5 curry leaves

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp rai

¼ tsp asafetida

1 tsp shredded ginger

1 tsp shredded garlic

1 large potato boiled and chopped

1 tbsp coriander powder

1 tsp red chilli powder

¼ tsp turmeric

Salt to taste

1 tsp  garam masala

1 cup beaten yogurt (if you use yogurt from the store, mix it with water so that it is not very thick)

½ tomato puree



In a pan, heat oil. Add cumin seeds, rai, curry leaves, asafetida and sauté for a few seconds. Add ginger and garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds, or until they begin to change color. Add potato, salt, coriander powder, red chilli powder, garam masala and turmeric.  Cook for 3-4 minutes. Add yogurt. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Add tomato puree. Cook for 3-4 minutes.

Dahi Aloo is ready. Serve hot and garnish with a few fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped.

    Great recipe. Easy to make as well. Though I would say one can taste it to check if they like it with or without tomatoes. I totally loved the taste before the addition of the tomato puree! Thanks, Saumya.. :)
