Mushroom Do Pyaza | Khumb Do Pyaza | Mushroom and Onions curry, what exactly is ‘Do Pyaza’

Here Do translates to two and Pyaza means Onion in Hindi language.

The name ‘Mushroom Do Pyaza’ essentially came from the onion that is used twice in 2 different ways in this recipe. Once in the diced form and other in finely chopped form.

There are few more recipes that are prepared this way with double the onion, like ‘Paneer Do Pyaza’ and  ‘Bhindi Do Pyaza’.

 

 

Mushroom Do Pyaza | Khumb Do Pyaza | Mushroom and Onions curry, with a twist

It is believed that Akbar Mullah Do Piaza, an advisor of Mughal emperor Akbar who created this dish Do pyaza or do piaza is named after him.

Though the original version is always made with meat, the vegetarian version is made with paneer, aloo/potatoes or bhindi/Lady finger.

The original Mughlai recipe used lot of onions and did not use any tomatoes instead curd was used to balance the flavors.

In addition to that, my version is not authentic do pyaza but a restaurant style mushroom do pyaza recipe, where I have used tomatoes instead of curd.

To make this recipe, I have used 2 types of onions and used them twice to make this recipe. Small onions or shallots were used for garnishing, whereas to make curry finely chopped onions were used.

If you don’t find shallots, you can use regular red onions, just cube them and use.
