Chinese Dum Aloo

This Chinese Dum Aloo is my Mom’s recipe. I just love this Indo-Chinese version of potato. This tastes delicious as a side dish with fried rice. Though we used to have this on breakfast with Luchi or Roti. Now choice is up to you that whether you want to have this on lunch or breakfast or dinner. It takes hardly any time to cook, so you can easily prepare this if you’re expecting guests.
