Dum or Dum Pukht, as it is traditionally called, is a cooking technique in which meat or vegetables are cooked over low flame in a heavy-bottomed pot or handi. This slow style of cooking allows the masalas to get fully absorbed into the dish and helps in enhancing its taste.

And what better time than the weekend to experiment with your culinary skills? Here we bring you a list of 5 dum-style sabzis that will amp up your lunch or dinner spread.
