Chicken Dupiaza with Pilau Rice - create the perfect Indian takeaway meal at home with this delicious curry recipe using tender chicken thighs and double onions.
Indian Dupiaza (Dopiaza)
Dupiaza or Dopiaza means double onions and refers to a delicious curry recipe using a base of onion puree as well as additional onions for a delicious sauce that can be used with a variety of different meats or proteins.
It's a popular choice at Indian takeaways and restaurants across the UK and other parts of the word and is my favourite option to pick along with pilau rice.
Meat used in Dupiaza
In this recipe, I use tender pieces of boneless chicken thighs. I recommend chicken thighs over chicken breast, at they stay much more tender in the sauce and absorb a lot more flavour. Although you can use chicken breast if you prefer.
Other great options are lamb, goat, beef or prawns (shrimp). Lamb and chicken are definitely my go-to proteins whenever I make this dish.
Want to try this recipe but don't eat meat? There are lots of great ingredients you can add to this instead of meat to turn it into a delicious vegetarian dish.
A mixture of vegetables, cauliflower, butternut squash, broccoli, spinach, potatoes, eggplant (aubergine), zucchini (courgette), mushrooms etc is all great options.
Want to add some protein? Go for a vegetarian meat substitute like Quorn, or use canned chickpeas or beans.
