According to legend, Dopiaza was somewhat of a happy accident, originally created by an over-zealous courtier of a Mughal Emperor who accidentally added too many onions to a dish. Its name literally meaning two onions, this veg-packed dish evolved from there to become a staple of Hyderabadi cuisine, typified by its combination of onion, meat, ginger, garlic and cardamom.
