    In Hindi "do" means "two" and "piaza" refers to onions - hence the origin of the name of this dish, which has prominent flavors of onion.

      Excellent Dopiaza, that had both me and the wife wanting more. Delicious aromas, and spicy flavours, make this a winner. Quite a dry curry but great with basmati rice. I added some tomato puree and a little youghurt, which worked just great too. Good recipe, thanks and we're having another this weekend.

      A great recipe, simplistic and quick to make for a curry made from scratch. It's made using a single pan too so minimal washing up! The resulting flavours are vibrant, especially when you bite into a cardamom or peppercorn. Heat is easily tailored to suit by adding more chilli powder at start of stage 7. Will definitely be making this one again.

      I cooked this for my family last night, and they loved it. Would make it again. My first ever adventure with so many spices. Good fun.
