    - Carla -'s Note:

    I am surprised a recipe for this hasn't already been posted. Dopiaza is a medium strength curry that contains double (!!!) the amount of onions than typically found in other curry recipes. It is a great recipe for the onion lovers!

      This was delicious, especially the next day. I followed the recipe as is but without the hot curry (for my husband and toddler). For the onions, I used 2 red and 2 brown. A real winner - thanks

      This is very good and easy to make. There seems to be many different recipes for dopiaza (perhaps not on this site), but this one is worth making again, especially for guests who have not developed a taste for HOT, HOT curry.

      A winning combination of onions, chicken and seasonings. Your photos beckoned me, the incredible taste won me over. Loved the extra punch the Hot Curry added. I won't change a thing when making it for family but will likely use just a touch of the hot curry for guests ... unless I am sure they are as fond of hot foods as am I! Thank you for a new taste experience!
