Hi foodies.. Welcome to Ayesha's kitchen. Dopiaza / Chicken do pyaza / murgh do pyaza is a delicious South Asian  curry dish .Do pyasa means two onions. For this dish, onions are added at two stages during cooking. One while cooking and other for tempering. Hence this dish is named as Chicken Do pyaza , '' chicken with two onion". This dish has became the staple dish of Hyderabadi cuisine (you can also check my hyderabadi dum biryani recipe here ). Like any other hyderabadi dish, the addition of sour agent is the key part of Dopiasa curry. Raw mangoes are often used for this purpose however lemon juice and cranberries can be used as well.

Healthy Chicken recipes for dinner is the one i searched for long. For me, preparation of  dinner meal is a  hard job. So always peep in google for some simple recipes. If  you are thinking of what to make with chicken, then give this a try. Chicken do pyaza is a healthy chicken recipe which pairs best with dosa, chappathi or Indian bread.
