Saunfwale aloo/ Kashmiri fennel potato curry

Kashmiri recipes are mildly flavored and very rich in texture. The abundance of fruit orchards and mild spices is evident in their recipes. The influence of mughal and middle eastern flavors also gives the cuisine a well rounded richness and elegance.

I have made the kashmiri dum aloo, kashmiri pulav several times. I was in no mood to make the koftas so was looking for a recipe simple yet typical kashmiri when I stumbled upon this. Please try this recipe to understand the depth of its taste..

8 to 10 baby potatoes
1 cup curd
1 tspn red chilli powder
1 tspn turmeric powder
1 tspn fennel seeds roasted and powdered
