Dahi Aloo recipe , how to make punjabi dahi aloo , aloo kadhi


Dahi aloo / Punjabi aloo kadhi recipe with step by step photos:- Dahi aloo is very famous and tasty north Indian recipe in which boiled potatoes are cooked with creamy yet simple and tangy yogurt sauce. In this recipe, yogurt sauce is cooked with very basic spices. You don’t need to worry about that fancy spices’ availability. Dahi ke Aloo can be served with Rotis and Parathas, but in Uttar Pradesh, it is usually served with Methi Bajra Poori, Kachori or Bedvi Pooris.

I am sharing here a family version of this dahi ke aloo which I learned from my neighbor aunty. I learned many authentic north Indian recipes from her.This curd based potato gravy is one of them. Many more recipes are coming on the blog in future.


It is a regular eats in my home in those busy days as this recipe is very quick. This recipe looks and tastes similar to a kadhi. You can also serve this as a fasting food/vrat ka khana, in which case you may substitute chili powder with black pepper powder if you avoid eating chili powder during fasting. You may also serve this with Kuttu poori,  Rajgiri Poori  or with Sabudana Thalipeeth.
