Mathura Ke Dubki Wale Aloo | How to make Dubki Wale Aloo

>>  Thursday, September 15, 2016

Dubki Wale Aloo is delicious UP style spicy potato curry served especially for breakfast in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi. Apart from being served in breakfast, Dubki wale aloo along with poori makes a way to an elaborate vegetarian meal during marriages in villages.You can relish this curry during fasts as it is no onion no garlic curry. Dubki Wale Aloo can also be served with your favourite parathas and phulkas too. It is very easy to make, loaded with flavours and spices. Let’s go through how to make this lip-smacking curry in minutes…

Next on the list of gravies I have a delicious Mathura Ke Dubki Wale Aloo. I read about this gravy for the first time when I did the theme on Cooking from a TV Soap. I had selected Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon, one of the iconic soaps I have ever come across. While the show was a romantic one, the food was the highlight I would say. The family is from Lucknow and they talk so much about Awadhi Cuisine and in general about the food that's so famous in Lucknow. In one of the episodes, they mention about Mathura Ke Aloo and Bedmi Poori. 

I have so many versions of Bedmi Pooris cooked. Since I have to rely on the source that claims the recipe, I do not claim the authenticity of the recipe. Simply that we have enjoyed the meal in the end. Even those who claim that their recipe is authentic, it will confine to their particular recipe alone. What the street side vendor makes is a best-kept secret, unless they share it with you.

Anyway while doing that theme, I wanted to make that Mathura Ke Aloo, I ended up making Aloo Matar Sabji Katti Dal, Jeera Rice Bedmi Pooris . I guess I didn't really search well for this Mathura ke aloo. I ended up here while searching for something and then I realised I should've searched it differently. So I have another inspiration for this Aloo and I wanted to make Bedmi Poori along with it.

Sometime ago Vaishali had sent me a packet of Bedmi Poori Flour, where everything is already mixed and the flour was just to be kneaded and made into pooris. So sweet of her and I was so happy having that packet. I finally remembered that and used the ready to use flour to make the Bedmi pooris to go along with Mathura Ke Dubki Wale Aloo. The combination was truly memorable!

The aloo recipe is almost like the many aloo recipes that I have cooked before. Yet it is different and the combination makes it different too. I had the feeling I get when I end up baking a chocolate cake. Same ingredients, different measurement, style and the taste changes. I also had this problem when I had made the Indian Food Odsedyy. Each state specified its special with some aloo. In the end, I felt if I was doing a state special or aloo special. I never ever thought one day I might actually end up doing Potato all 26 days.

Anyway, check out this version that was so delicious!

Oh Valli, you made my day!! You don't know how happy you made me by just mentioning the show name!! I was so over joyed and could not even concentrate on the write up. With great difficult read the write up and jumped to the comment section. That is one of my favorite shows and you would not believe how many times I watched it online. The show is being re-telecasted for the second time here in US, first on LikeOK couple of years ago and now on Star Plus. Despite watching it numerous times, I religiously watch it every afternoon. I remember the mathura ki aloo episode very well.

When we did Indian Cooking Odyssey I made aloo ki pakodi for UP following the recipe from the show but didn't post it though. I ended up posting jalebi and when I shared the link on FB, all my FB friends who knew about my craze for this show commented saying I was missing KKGSR. Though that was not the reason why I did jalebi. Sorry, I have gone off topic here but you see how crazy I am about that show!!

I generally do not remember sop names. But the name iss pyar sounds vaguely familiar. The aloo sound yum I am especially eying the brass container that you have used. Just like what is used in Gao.
