Suran Ki Sabzi

How to make Suran Do Pyaza | Spicy Indian Yam Gravy | Elephant Foot Yam Sabji With step by step photos | Spicy Elephant Yam Masala Fry | Yam Semi Dry Gravy Recipe 

Hello Friends,

I'm back with one more Suran aka Indian Yam recipe for you. Sharing recipe with step by step photos. 

A quick recap

Suran Do Pyaza is the best suited name for today's recipe as I'm going to add double the quantity of onions of the base ingredient i.e. Suran..

Meaning of Dopiaza

Dopiaza also spelled as Do pyaza is a Persian word which means "Two Onions". This term is mainly used for South Asian Curry recipes. The term do pyaza have some interesting meanings. It means either double quantity of onion is used Or onion is used in two forms or two types of onions are added in two stages... Sounds confusing!🤔🙄 Don't worry, ☺ Naam mein Kya rakha hai..🤓😋😆Instead, simply enjoy the dish.. I mean as long as, recipe is tempting and delectable.. Give any name which is comfortable to you.. Even simple Suran Sabji is perfectly okay..

In today's recipe, we need a good quantity of onions. For 250 grams of Suran, I'm going to add 500 grams of onions. Chopping of onions in today's recipe is equally important, we don't want finely or very finely chopped onions but thick and roughly chopped onions..
