Adhraki dum aloo- simple yet delicious

Being in India was so much fun. I enjoyed meeting and visiting friends. I got to learn new dishes from them which I promptly noted down to be put in my blog. One was baafle which I have already shared with you all and has been the most viewed recipe in Creative saga. There are many more recipes to tried and tasted yet.This particular recipe, which I was quite eager to try out is adhraki dum aloo. I had this at a friend's place for dinner. I was quite amazed by the simplicity of the dish. The recipe involves only a few ingredients and is so simple to make and the outcome is too good. I especially loved the taste of ginger which is the key ingredient of the recipe.
