Just a little bit of oil and you are there with the most exotic dum aloo recipe at your disposal. Frying the potatoes and then putting them into a gravy is very hectic.

Moreover, it is quite unhealthy because first of all, you need to add a lot of oil while frying the potatoes and secondly that is a whole lot of oil consumption in cooking the gravy.

However, using a pressure cooker you can cook everything quite well in very minimal oil consumption. Moreover, the nutrients of the food remain intact because there is little scope for them to fly.
