the kashmiri dum aloo recipe is lengthy yet straightforward and these tips and recommendations should make it even simpler. firstly, for a authentic dum aloo, the size of the potatoes is very important. make sure the baby potatoes are not very small and certainly not the size of normal potatoes. secondly, i have added 1 tsp of kashmiri chilli powder which can be too spicy for medium or low spice consumers. hence you can lower it, for instance, ¾ tsp or accordingly as per your taste or preference. lastly, if you are not able to find the baby potatoes with the required size then you can cut the normal potatoes by half and use the same for this recipe too.
