Mutton Dopyaza (U.P. Style)

Many people get confused with the name (including Pankaj  )..DoPyaza means DO-Pyaaz i.e. two Onions..But actually it means 'Duguna-Pyaaz' i.e. onion in double quantity  !

This recipe is typical U.P. my father use to prepare this way back and also i don't know any other version  ..I used equal(or more) amount of onion as mutton..Also lots of dried  whole red chilies..Actually onion and chilies neutralize each other sweetness and hotness same time.So..Don't Worry !

Must use Red Onion as they are less sweet and very sharp in taste and plz plz plz...DON'T use Green Chilies in this recipe.Fresh made garam masala powder is must too !

best companion of mutton !!
