A richly-flavoured potato dish from the Mughlai repertoire, Aloo Lajawab is prepared in the typical opulent style of the Nawabs, with lots of dairy products and cashews too. Cashews are used not just in the paste but also halved and added along with the potatoes to add a lovely crunch to the dish.
While the milk, curds and cashew paste contribute a creamy mouth-feel and luscious texture to the Aloo Lajawab, the caraway seeds and spice powders give it an enchanting aroma and tongue-tickling flavour, which will surely make you lick your fingers clean, and yearn for one more helping of this delicious Main Course .
