Cast your vote for Aloo Dumwale/Creamy Potatoes

Last Saturday, all of a sudden, one of my husband's friend with his family came to visit us and I didn't have enough groceries to prepare something special for them. I found only some sweet potatoes and Egg left in my store. Nothing came into my mind except Egg Curry and Aloo (Potato) Dumwale. Generally I use to make Aloo Dum in Bengali style, but this time I preferred to do something different (because my guests were Non Bengali) like North Indian Style. This is the first time, I prepared Aloo Dumwale.

For my friends, who are not very much familiar with Indian cuisine, I want to describe the dish in detail. Dum a is cookery proficiency. It is a dumb-cooking method, where the master ingredients with other ingredients/spices are kept in a closed pan with lid on a very minimum heat. The pan is kept closed so no steam can get away.
