Beef Stew : 'do Piaz'. .'Do piaz' translates to '2 onions'. This Beef
Stew do Piaz is an Indian cooking technique for the onion lovers among
us : it is a slowly braised dish combining both cooked and raw onions.

The main stew ingredient, usually meat, is gently cooked with half the
onions until very tender.
Then a second batch of raw onions is stirred in towards the end of
cooking, to give extra texture and taste.

In traditional do-piaz-stew-recipes : the amount of onions used is 2
times the amount of meat.
If you have a crock pot : this beef stew is ideal to put in the crock
pot after having fried the ingredients.


- 2 onions, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 inch (2.5 cm) ginger, chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh coriander leafs, chopped

- 1 teaspoon salt
- 5 oz (150 gr) (1 little pot) yogurt
- 7 oz (220gr) tender topside beef, cut in 1 inch (2.5 cm) cubes

1. Put one onion, garlic, ginger, paprika, chili powder, cumin,
coriander, yogurt and salt in the food-processor. Process until mixture
