Dopiaza curries are those in which the sauce is reduced to a minimum, and are cooked with more butter and less water. The translation of dopiaza is “two onions,” this referring to the fact that an equal quantity of ground onions and fried onions is used in the making of these curries. The following ingredients are used for any of the dopiaza curries: 3 ozs. of butter, 4 teaspoons of ground onions, 1 teaspoon each of ground turmeric and chillies, ½ a teaspoon of ground ginger, ¼ teaspoon of ground garlic, 12 small onions, cut lengthwise into 6 or 7 slices each, 1½ teaspoons of salt, 1 breakfast cupful of water and—according to taste—½ a teaspoon of coriander seed. An alternative method of making dopiazas is to fry 2 or 3 small onions and to add 1 tablespoon of curry powder, instead of all the above ingredients.
