sharing a family recipe of punjabi dahi aloo. at times, i make this dahi aloo as a quick side gravy dish to go with chapatis or steamed rice. you just need to boil the potatoes and preparing the sauce does not take much time.

the recipe is good and tastes similar to a kadhi. just that there are potatoes added which makes some difference. there is a also a no onion no garlic version of dahi aloo already posted on the blog.

serve dahi aloo with chapatis, rotis or steamed rice. the aloo dahi gravy also goes very well with jeera rice or matar pulao.

  1. Too good recipe.. Came out so well.. Thanks for the great recipe..

    • Welcome Pavi

  2. I made it today for my son’s tiffin box with methi paratha. Tasted heavenly… I just loved it… eagerly expecting the reaction from my lil one… 🙂

    • Thanks Preethi for sharing this positive feedback.

  3. I really can not thank you enough for this wonderful recipe. I made it today and it served as a perfect after work comforting meal. We Bengalees use dahi in many dishes and we are taught to lower the flame as low as possible to prevent curdling of the yogurt. But adding besan serves as an excellent alternative. Thank you again for the recipe.

    • Welcome Anuria. Glad to know this. Thanks for your appreciation. Even we keep the flame to the lowest when adding curd in any dish and then stir it quickly. At times i remove the pan from the burner and then add the curd.
