The potato dish up there looks so stunning! I bet this should be spicy enough :). Good! You have used sour yogurt too; but how does that help? May be yogurt helps in softening the potato cubes or does is also add on to the taste. Also, this seems to a dry gravy dish rite?

Sour Yogurt defintely adds a nice tangy taste to the curry.

The dahiwale aloo seems to be very yummy. why you have used sour yogurt instead of fresh one? can i use dry mustard seeds also? it makes the dish more colorful and tasty..

You definitely can use fresh yogurt. And if this yogurt is sour, it really adds to the taste.

I am crazy about anything that has potato in it..who is bothered about the calories when the dish can be so yumm..and your Dahiwale Aloo sounds great..but how do you stop the yogurt from curdling?..or does that add to the consistency of the dish?

Hi, :) I just left you a comment for mooli paratha and I have a question for this too. I tried this dish for the mooli paratha. Is there a way I get to have this with a lil gravy; i meant something like a semi-gravy or so, as the parathas are a lil dry, I think making the side dish in semi-gravy would go great with it! Lemme know pls

This dish is usually a semi gravy one which goes well with roti or paratha. I served this as a side dish with rice. So I made it dry.
