Chicken Doh Pyaza is traditionally a very long and tedious recipe but this great short and easy version makes it possible in our busy lives. It is absolutely delicious and one of my family’s favorites.


Onions – 4 (Medium size)

Chicken 2 lbs (bite size pieces)

Garlic 3 cloves

Ginger– 2 tbsp

Yogurt 2 cups

Green Chilies – optional

Salt to taste

Garam Masala 1 heaping tsp

Coriander Powder 1 tsp

Cumin Powder – 1 tsp

Red chili Powder – to taste/optional

Tomatoes – 2 large

Fresh Cilantro – 3 sprigs


  1. Prep by chopping the following finely: 2 Onions, Green Chilies, Ginger and Garlic.
  2. In a pressure cooker, add the following: chopped Onions, washed Meat, Garlic, Ginger, beaten Yogurt, Green Chilies, Salt, Garam Masala, Coriander, Cumin and Red Chili Powders.
  3. Add in 1-cup water and mix well.
  4. Pressure cook on high heat for 2 whistles.
  5. After pressure is gone, open cooker and add the rest of the Onions (sliced) and the Tomatoes (chopped).
  6. Cook uncovered on medium heat till the meat is done (approximately 10 mins). Cook longer if you like thicker gravy.
  7. Garnish with chopped Cilantro and serve.
  8. Serves 4-6


1. Chicken tends to cook really fast so if you do like thick gravy – take out the chicken pieces, thicken the gravy and then add the chicken back in.

2. For a variation to this recipe, use Goat or Beef instead of Chicken. See Mutton Doh Pyaza.
