    Thank you Bharat for valuable addition to it.



    it was really tasty...if u add some fresh cream it will turn out more richer


    Mr. Bharat Kashmiri Dum aloo main there is no onion, tomato, ginger garlic paste. and to granish with green grapes pineapple is never heard pista dates etc etc.


    To convert this dish into Kashmiri Dum Aloo, you need to garnish it with black raisins, green grapes, sliced pineapple and apple as well as topple it up with dryfruits which should include cashews, almonds, pistas and dates all thinly sliced. It will be more delicious... trust me.


    Really the dish came out very well. Everybody in our home liked it. Thank you very much
