Food & Recipes

The Indian name of this dish, doh piaza, translates literally as 'two onions'. It has never quite been settled whether this means the onions are added in two forms, or at two different stages of cooking, or that the dish has twice as much onion as most other preparations of this type.

Serves 8-10.

In the cuisines of Asia, it would be rare to find liver cooked pink. In this traditional curry it may seem the liver is overcooked, but the firm, small dice in their spicy gravy seem just right to serve with rice.
