Murg Do Pyaza/Chicken Do Pyaza

As the name suggests,Murgh DoPyaza is the togetherness of chicken with onion and the combination wrecks havoc. The large blocks of onion with pieces of chicken is a popular restaurant dish. The best thing about it is that, with each bite of chicken, you will feel the presence of onion. I was searching for a slightly different recipe of chicken and found it in the form ofMurg DoPyaza. Sharing it with pleasure.
