  3. Hi dasaana.
    Here I would like to know the difference between dum aloo & lasaniya batata??5 stars

    • both taste different priyanka. lasaniya batata is spicy and uses a ground red chili base, whereas kashmiri dum aloo has curd, red chili powder, ginger powder and saunf flavors coming through. punjabi dum aloo gravy is tomato-onion based with nuts like cashews or almonds also ground to a paste. cream or khoya is also added.
