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.

  • here in UP.. We call it Potato kAdhi... & in Dahi aloo we don't add gramflour..in our dahi aloo version,we simply make dry potatoes fry & den add yogurt into it..dats it

    • thanks priya for sharing this info. nice to know this. gram flour is added so that the curd does not curdle.

      • To stop curdling, u just need to add the curd into pan via sieve... Or just blend it evenly &add into pan .there is no need 2 add besan

        • i usually blend the curd and add but sometimes the curd does curdle. so to avoid the curdling i add besan and it works.

  • Awsome recipe.please tell me the recipe of paneer which is made in marriges.kindly please suggest me ur reply.thank u.

  • Do you know the botanical name for the Curry Leaves you use in your recipes? I would like to try and grow the plant so that I could have fresh curry leaves. I can't find them anywhere in the Chicago area, neither fresh or even dried. Your recipes all look so delicious.

    • i am not sure about the botanical name. in hindi we call it as kadipatta and even meetha neem. you can easily grow them in a pot or on the ground. you will need a curry leaf seed for that. in some indian or asian grocery store, you should be able to get fresh curry leaves. just dry them naturally and store in a bottle. you can also powder them if you want.

      • Thanks for your advice. I will keep searching. I found an online retailer, but the price was so high with shipping that I didn't but them. Hopefully I'll find a grocery store that sells Indian spices.

  • I like always veg. dishes.That is why I am very much interested in your receipies.I read it with great interest. I give you full marks. Thanks a lot.

  • I made this last night and it was so good! Thank you for creating such a great resource for Indian recipes. (FYI - the ingredient list in the recipe is lacking curry leaves, but I knew to add them from the beautiful photos.)

    • thanks for the positive review mark :)
      also thanks for letting me know about curry leaves missing from the ingredient list. i will update in the post.

  • Hi Dassana, I made this today and it came out so well. As you said, it is similar to kadhi. It feels heavy also because of potatoes:-) The only variation I did was to cut potatoes into cubes instead of crumbling. Thanks for sharing this with step by step recipe.

  • This was delish...everyone including my colleagues loved it and asked for the recipe...thanku Dassana for this lovely recipe.

  • What a lovely recepie..... I love cooking nd I tried it for first time. ...nd it turned out very tasty?
    Everyone loved my dish.... 1thing I want to mention specially is dat....ur method of posting the recepies step by step with snaps...makes the procedure so easy.... Thnxx a lot... nd keep posting new nd delicious recepies????

  • Hi,
    Loved making dahi aloo today. Had never tried aloo and dahi combination. Wanted to try something different than the regular aloo gobhi, aloo mutter, aloo methi. And I got this and gave it a try. Really turned out awesome and everybody and home loved it. I have become a huge fan of your recipes and keep trying it out. I have tried your sambhar with sambhar powder, usal,dal makhani, dal tadka and so much. Thank you so so much for the simple way you put the recipes and motivating us to make the dish and in turn ending up gaining the praise of the family members.
    Thanks once again.

    • thank you so much kavitha for this encouraging comment and feedback on the recipes. hugs to you and also wish you and your family a happy new year.

  • All books on cookery now appears dull as I browsed through your App....... very well composed, especially the photographs.
    Thankyou for such a great help to the novice cooks. Dahi Aloo is awesome....... easy to cook.?

    • this means a lot us thankyou shubhrta for your kind and positive feedback :) and you are welcome.

  • One of my favourites, thank you for making this amazing blog with so many delicious recipes. Merci !
    Do you consider publishing a book ?

    • thanks a lot camille. for the time being we have dropped of the idea of publishing a book. may be in the future :-)

  • 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.

  • 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... :)
