Potato In Dahi (Yoghurt) Curry | Dahi Aloo Recipe

I started cooking even before my teens. Initially it was helping around with my mom. Then, as I grew, she started teaching me simple recipes to try on my own. This Dahi Aloo recipe one is definitely one of those.

Eventually, my Dad started liking my version more than my mom’s. Maybe it was his way of encouraging me, but I still love to believe that. So, whenever I am visiting them or vice versa, I definitely include Dahi wale Aloo in the dinner menu.

A recipe cannot be simpler than this, it is tasty, highly nutritious and does not need fancy ingredients.

Accompaniments to Dahi Wale Aloo:

It goes exceptionally well with luchis/pooris or deep fried unleavened Indian breads. You can also enjoy these with crispy Paranthas or Chapattis. I have even served it with healthy Beet Luchis.
