This potato curry is a simplified of dum aloo, a Kashmiri dish where potatoes are fried and them slowly cooked in a savory tomato-based gravy. Instead of being deep-fried, the potatoes are cooked until soft and then quickly pan-fried with cumin before being tossed in a richly spiced, creamy tomato gravy. It's served with star anise-infused rice, which adds notes of licorice. This is a simple, budget-friendly recipe that will satisfy your taste buds while not calling for a huge list of ingredients.
