Dum Aloo

This year i tried growing potato for the very first time and i have a small balcony garden so grow everything in pots .Sowed the seeds in early spring and now by summer it produced some small cute potatoes for us.
When i saw the baby potatoes the first dish that came to my mind is Dum Aloo.
