Dum means cooking in steam. Dum cooking brings the oil or ghee, used for the preparation, to the top of the dish thus improving its appearance. This Dum Aloo preparation uses baby potatoes which are easier to cook. You may however, use medium sized potatoes, each cut into 2, if you do not find baby potatoes.
