Mushrooms were once considered a delicacy in India, only found in the foothills of Jammu and Kashmir and served during special functions. After mushroom cultivation began in the 1950s they grew in popularity and were incorporated into many traditional dishes throughout the nation.
Do Pyaza translates to “two onions,” hence in this dish mushrooms are cooked in double the amount of onions typically used. Since onions add sweetness they need to be balanced with something tart and sour like tomatoes. The resulting dish is a blast of flavors and textures and is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
