do pyaza recipe



Do Pyaza is a popular Indian dish featuring a thick masala gravy and a double portion of onions, hence the name 'Do Pyaza' (two onions). The blend of onions with various spices forms a tangy and savory gravy, which pairs delightfully with the main ingredient, which could be vegetables, chicken, or mutton. This dish is particularly popular in North India and goes perfectly with rotis, naan, or rice.
