Niramish Alu Dum with Luchi

This dish was prepared by mom on ganesh chaturthi.This is my favorite dish.My mom used to prepare it during pujas when we are suppose to eat veg(that is without onion and garlic).It goes excellent with luchis. Luchi is the bengali version of puri.Its made of maida.I heard that during my grand mom's days there were no existence of refined oil and luchi used to be fried in ghee.I just mistakenly born in this time.I just want to go back to that time.Here goes the recipe of alu dum and luchi.

  1. Alu/Potato - 500 gms
  2. Tomato medium - 2 chopped
  3. Ajwain - 1 tsp
  4. Elaichi - 5
  5. Dalchini - 2''
  6. Lavang - 5
  7. Chilly powder - 2 tsp
  8. Turmeric powder - 1tsp
  9. Ginger paste - 2 tsp
  10. salt and sugar to taste
  11. Oil - 3 tbsp (preferably mustard oil)

  1. Cut the potatoes into halves and then boil it.
  2. Heat oil in kadai. Add Cinnamon, Cardamom, Clove and ajwain.
  3. Add tomato and fry for sometime till the oil oozes out.Now add chilly powder(you can use kashmiri red chilly powder for color and its less spicy),turmeric powder and ginger.Fry for 1-2 min.
  4. Now add water .Its based on how much gravy you want.Cover and cook in simmer for 10-15 mins.Add salt and sugar to taste.
  5. Now remove cover and in high flame let it boil till you get desired consistency.
  6. Serve it hot with luchi.

For Luchi:

Mix one cup of maida, 2 tbsp of refined oil(or ghee), salt.Make a dough with water.Spread a drop of oil on top of it and cover it till you are done with the dum alu.Now make small balls out of it.Roll it and deep fry in oil.
