How to Make Chicken Do Piaza

  • Grind the green chillies, ginger, garlic and half the onions to a coarse paste.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil and fry the remaining onions. Set aside.

  • Add the spice powders and salt. Cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes, vinegar and some water. Simmer for 5 minutes until the gravy thickens.
