Dopiaza translates to double onion – which is fitting for this dish as onions are added twice during cooking. The base of this chicken dopiaza recipe are sauteed carmalized onions which the chicken cooks over in the pot. Another round of onion is added towards the end which gives the dish a bright fresh finish.

How Do I Make This Chicken Dopiaza Recipe?

  1. In a large dutch oven or heavy bottom pot, heat the coconut oil over low heat. Add the garlic and 2/3 of the chopped onions, cover pot with lid, and sautee on low for about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally. Onions should become soft and tender.
  2. Add the chicken to the dutch oven, along with the garam masala, turmeric, coriander, and garlic salt. Stir well to combine and allow the chicken to get coated in the spices. Sautee chicken for about 10 minutes in the onions and spices.
  3. Add the crushed tomatoes, Vegetable stock, bell pepper, zucchini, and the remaining 1/3 of the chopped onions. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low so the chicken is simmering. Cover with a lid and cook for 30 minutes until chicken is cooked all way through, and Vegetables are tender.
  4. Remove pot from heat and stir in the coconut milk to make a thick and creamy sauce. Add fresh pepper, and cilantro for garnish. Serve over rice with garlic naan bread.
