Do pyaaza doesnt mean 2 onions. it means the onions should be double that of chicken/mutton or watever. i.e. if chicken is 1 kg then onion shud be 2 kgs

Do pyaaza indicates onion is used in 2 ways. 1stly half quantity is fried with ginger & garlic, later
2nd half is added raw with meat & spices, letting the meat absorb all the juices from the onion. Quantity of onion mentioned is ok, infact even lesser can be used if u want to make the dish more dry. My grandmother makes this dish the best & she told me the concept behind the name 'Do Pyazza'
