CHICKEN DOPIAZA



Chicken Dopiaza is a famous Indian dish orginated during Moghul empire using heavy dose of onion, simmered in a mixture of spices and yogurt. Half of the onion is fried until golden brown,  later added to the gravy lightly crushed and the balance of the onion is blended.

For milder curry, you can reduce the chili powder used.  This gravy can be cooked with lamb, king prawn or even vegetarian style. It is best taken with  flavored rice or flat bread...

I like the sound of this one, and I'd probably stick with the original amount of chilli, because it's so good!

This sounds so delicious. This used to be my favourite curry take away but I'm avoiding that now because it tends to be to oily and too salty. I'll try to make this myself.
