    Dum Aloo

    Pound potatoes, even-sized (I like to use the small new red potatoes)
    Oil for frying
    2 Tablespoons ghee
    2 Bay leaves
    1 1/2 Teaspoons cumin seeds (zeera)
    3 pods green cardamom
    1 Teaspoon fennel seed
    1/2 Teaspoon fenugreek seeds
    3 whole cloves
    1 Tablespoon ginger, finely chopped
    1/2 cup tomatoes, chopped
    1/2 cup plain yogurt
    1/4 Teaspoon Turmeric
    1 Tablespoon Coriander powder
    1/2 Teaspoon mirch (Indian red chili powder)
    2 fresh green chilies, slit open
    1 Tablespoon fresh coriander leaves, chopped
    2 Tablespoons cream

    Peel, wash and pat the potatoes dry (when I use the red potatoes, I don't peel
    them). Prick the potatoes with a fork in 2-3 places. Deep fry them over high heat
    until light brown. Set aside on paper towels to drain. Roast the cardamom,
    fenugreek, cloves and fennel seeds and pound coarsely. Heat the ghee in a heavy
    saucepan and add the bay leaves. When they darken a bit, add the roasted spices.
    Stir a little, then add the ginger. Stir fry until the color changes slightly.
    Add the tomatoes and continue stir frying until the fat separates. Add the yogurt
    and continue to stir until the fat separates again. Add salt, turmeric, coriander
    powder and mirch. Mix well and add the fried potatoes and green chilies. Stir until
    the vegetables are coated with the masala, and begin to stick slightly to the pan.
    Add enough water to cover the potatoes (about 3 cups) and bring to boil. Simmer at
    low heat until the potatoes are cooked through and the gravy is well blended. Serve
    hot, garnished with cream and chopped coriander leaves.
