Aloo-Parwal Do-Pyaza

Dopiaza is a type of Indian curry where dish is cooked with lots of onions.  Dopiaza is made with lamb, chicken or fish. Dopiaza means "two onions," and indicates that onions are added at two times during cooking. I try dopiaza with parwal which is very popular among Bengali community.

Ingredients :

Parwal (Pointed Gourd ) : 8 pieces
Potato : 3 (medium)
Onion : 3 (medium) (1 onion cut sliced another 2 make a paste)

Coriander Powder : 1/2 tsp.
Garam Masala Powder : 1/2 tsp.
Cumin seeds : 1 tsp.

In the same oil, fry parwals until they are brown in colour.Remove the parwal from the oil.
Now add cumin seeds and bay leaves, once they start sizzling add onion paste, saute for 5 mins.
