Mushroom Do Piaza

I have had Do Piaza several times in Indian restaurants, but never ventured in to making one. Do Piaza mean “two onions”, it gets its name because onions appear twice in the cooking process (Google). I came across many recipes, but after all the experiments I settled with the one below from yummy food for tummy. Since I am on fasting for this week and the coming week I am posting all vegetarian dishes and here’s mushroom do piazza, you can very well replace the mushrooms with chicken or mutton.

So here’s how to make Mushroom Do Piaza with step by step photos…



Ingredients

Onion
1 finely chopped
Tomato
1 finely chopped
Whole button mushrooms
1 packet [ 350 gm]
Ginger & garlic paste
2 tsp
Coriander powder
2 tsp
Garam masala powder
½ tsp
Turmeric powder
¼ tsp
Cumin seeds
½ tsp
Oil
2 tsp
Salt
As needed
Cilantro
1 tsp finely chopped

For Grinding

Onion
1 cubed
Tomato
1 cubed
Dry red chillies(roasted)
4 or 5
Black pepper corns
1 tsp
Cilantro
¼ of a bunch [washed and cleaned]

Method

Clean the mushrooms with a damp cloth and cut them and keep them aside. [Do not wash the mushrooms, they will absorb all the water and get soggy].

Grind the ingredients mentioned in the table and keep it aside.

Heat oil in a kadai, add cumin seeds, onions and sauté until golden brown. Now add the ginger & garlic paste and sauté until the raw smell goes off.



Then add the tomatoes and let it get mushy, now add the ground paste, coriander powder, turmeric powder, salt and let it cook until oil separates.


Now add the diced mushrooms cover and cook in low flame for 10 -15 min or until done.


Finally garnish with cilantro and switch off the stove.




Serve it hot with rotis, chapathis or any bread of your choice.

Yummy and delicious Mushroom Do Piaza is ready…

Suggestions:

I made mushroom do piazza in a gravy consistency, you can as well make it a little dry.

You can add some cashew nuts when grinding the paste to make it richer and delicious.



You can replace mushrooms with chicken or mutton, which taste awesome.
