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
