Dopiaza (Persian: دوپیازه meaning "two onions") is a Middle Eastern dish from Afghan cuisine. It is prepared with a large amount of onions, both cooked in the spices and curry and as a garnish. Onions are added at two stages during cooking, hence the name ("two onions" Dari). The dish usually contains a meat, usually beef, chicken, lamb, mutton, 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 from Afghanistan Akbar Mullah Do Piaza accidentally added a large quantity of onions to a dish. The dish evolved further in Hyderabad, India, Pakistan, and many other countries around the world and became a staple of Mughal 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.
