Dopiaza (persian: دوپیازه "from Persian meaning (having) two onions") is a South-Asian curry dish. It is prepared with a large amount of onions, both cooked in the curry and as a garnish. Onions are added at two stages during cooking, hence the name ("two onions"). The dish usually contains a meat, usually king prawns, chicken, lamb, or shrimp; however, it can also be prepared in a vegetarian style.
According to the legend the dish was created when a courtier of Mughal emperor Akbar Mullah Do Piaza accidentally added a large quantity of onions to a dish. The dish evolved further in Hyderabad, India and became a staple of Hyderabadi cuisine.
The simple recipe for Dopiaza is made up of chicken or meat, onions, ginger and garlic paste, whole hot spices (black cardamoms, cloves and peppercorns), salt and chili powder.
