Dahi Aloo Recipe – Dahi Wale Aloo Recipe For Fast/ Navratri Vrat

Print Friendly and PDF
Last week I made Dahi aloo recipe ( Dahi wale aloo/ dahi aloo ki sabzi) as side dish for Kuttu ki puri. In North India, people make dahi wale aloo during fast/Vrat for roti or poori. Dahi aloo is a yogurt based/curd based dish in which boiled potatoes are cooked with spices. It is most popular in Rajasthan. I could relate its taste to Dahi kadhi. I followed this recipe from Maayeka. We liked it with kuttu atta poori. This Dahi aloo sabzi goes well with Rajgira poori and Sabudana thalipeeth too.

As this is a curd based dish, chances of this gravy getting curdled is more. So we should keep some basic points in mind like curd should be whisked well before cooking, it should boil only in low to medium flame, mixing the gravy should be done at regular intervals, add besan flour to avoid curdling.
