Wash the potatoes thoroughly with water. Add them to the pressure cooker and cook for 3-4 whistles or until soft.

After the steam releases, open the lid, drain the water and allow the potatoes to cool. Peel the skin and chop the potatoes roughly to chunks.

In a wide bowl, add the yogurt/curd/thayir, add besan flour, little water and whisk thoroughly to make a smooth batter. Make sure there are no lumps in the curd and keep it ready.

Heat oil in a kadai/sauce pan, sputter cumin seeds, then add 2 dry red chillies and fry to 10-15 seconds.

Now add asafoetida/perungayam, bay leaf and fry for 10-15 seconds. 

Add sliced onions, green chillies and fry well until they turn to golden brown color.

At this stage add ginger & garlic paste and fry well until all the raw smell vanishes.

Add the washed curry leaves and give a good stir.

Now add red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and salt.

Mix everything really well until the raw smell vanishes and begins to release oil from the sides. Add 2 tbsp of water and toss well so that the masala is cooked well.

Add the potatoes to the masala and mix again till the potates are well coated with the masala.

Reduce the flame to low and start pouring the beaten curd over the potatoes. Mix really well.

Adjust the salt at this stage and close the lid. Simmer the curry for about 5-6 minutes.

Now you will see the creamy aloo potato is ready, switch off the stove. Add the finely chopped cilantro/coriander leaves and give a good stir.

Yummy, delicious and tempting Dahi Aloo is ready to be enjoyed. Serve it hot with steam cooked white rice or Chapathis or CuminRice/Jeera Rice or Ghee Rice.
