“I am surprised a recipe for this hasn't already been posted. Dopiaza is a medium strength curry that contains double (!!!) the amount of onions than typically found in other curry recipes. It is a great recipe for the onion lovers!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large wok style pan place the oil, curry, garam masala, hot curry (if using) cinnamon and cumin.
  2. Over a low flame, heat spices 1 to 2 minutes, to allow the flavors to blend (don't allow mixture to smoke).

  4. Remove onions from pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  5. Add sliced chicken and garlic to the pan, along with salt & pepper to taste.

  7. Mix in the reserved onions, chicken broth and the chopped tomatoes with juice.
