Dum Aloo gets its characteristic flavour and texture from the intensely-flavoured gravy that the potatoes are cooked in.
The gravy gets its deep flavour and luscious texture from a paste of onions and spices, cooked along with tomato pulp and fresh cream.
You can make a batch of Basic Dum Aloo Gravy using this recipe, and use it immediately, or deep-freeze it to whip up your favourite dishes in minutes when you wish to.
- Combine the tomatoes and 1½ cups of water in a broad non- stick pan, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 12 minutes. Cool slightly.
- Blend in a mixer along with the water till smooth and strain using a strainer. Keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a non-stick kadhai, add the prepared paste and sauté on a medium flame for 3 minutes, while stirring continuously.
- Add the cloves, cinnamon and cardamom and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minutes.
- Add the fresh tomato pulp, fresh cream, salt and sugar, mix well and cook for another 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Use as required.
- Use this gravy on the same day to make recipes of your choice. If you wish to store it in the deep-freezer for a few weeks, avoid adding fresh cream as the gravy may get spoilt on storing. Pour in food-grade zip lock bags or airtight containers and store under refrigerated conditions.
- While making the subzi using the stored gravy, thaw and use it as per the recipe. Towards the end, add the fresh cream, mix well and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
