ALOOR DUM ( BENGALI STYLE DUM ALOO ) SPICY POTATO CURRY




Ask any Bengali about  their favourite  breakfast, they will shut their eyes and reply Luchi  Aloor Dum. This combination is a classic Bengali breakfast.

Luchi or Bengali style poori  is a deep-fried flat bread made of flour or maida and aloor dum is nothing but dum aloo but here it is prepared  using  Bengali spices. With guests at home, traditional Bengali families love to serve this combo for breakfast . Normally,it is served  as breakfast  in the Sunday  morning  in any Bengali household.All family  members  sit together  and enjoy the Sunday morning  with this delicious  breakfast.
I always prefer  to make this aloor dum  or dum aloo  with baby potatoes, if you want, you can also use big or medium  sized potatoes. ..then select the quantity according to your requirements .
