Ok so I did a slightly different version.

Mine is called DUM Aloo which I took a little of this recipe, another from, a third which I forgot what is was called and mixed them together... You know subtracted something from one added something form another and continued still I got the finished product you see in the picture.

*WARNING* Lots of Seasoning was used... but they are to die for. I made my 2 lb bash 4 days ago and I still haven't stopped eating leftovers and it's still good! Even cold (isn't that weird?).


So my blog has all the ingredients I used and how I prepared mine!
