Shrimps cooked in Onion Gravy | চিংড়ি মাছের দোপিয়াজা

Chingri DoPyaza or Prawn Dopiaza is a traditional Bengali style Spicy Shrimp dry Curry which is more popularly known as Kosha Chingri Macher Kalia. It’s a delicacy for Bengalis, a comfort food when paired with steamed white rice or jeera/vegetable pulao. ‘Kosha’ or ‘Bhuna’ means cooking on slow flame for longer hours by continuous stirring to extract utmost flavours & oil from the ‘masala’ (spice mix) & meat. Who could dare to deny a plateful of Mutton Kosha? But in case of prawns spices are cooked in low flame, sometimes with lid on to prevent burning and then prawns are added. Otherwise over cooked prawns will turn chewy like rubber; this is more like ‘kalia’ than ‘kosha’ by technicality. But Kosha Chingri Macher Kalia tastes nothing but heavenly with plateful of piping hot steamed rice or Bengali Kaju Kishmish Pulao/Basanti Pulao.

Do pyaza originated in Khorasan (present-day Iran and Afghanistan) was introduced to South Asia by the Mughals (1526-1857), has become popular in India, Pakistan, and many other countries around the world and became a staple of Mughal cuisine. Onions are added at two stages during cooking, hence the name.

The cuisine of Bengal consists of dishes from both East and West Bengal i.e. undivided Bengal era as well as the dishes which originated in the city of Kolkata during the British rule. There is an emphasis on vegetarian cuisine, specially during festivals and is most commonly prepared without onion and garlic. A Mughlai influence on the cuisine is due to the their rule over certain parts of Bengal and the last Mughal emperor Wajid Ali Shah has said to have contributed a lot to the Bengali cuisine.

There is a bit of history involved with the origin of this unique blend of cuisines; The Indian form of “Hakka Cuisine” originates from the fact that the a lot of Chinese restaurants in India are owned by the people of the Hakka origin. Both the Indian and the Chinese cultures combined, accepted and fused happily in terms of food giving birth to an entirely new kind called the Indo-Chinese or the Indian Chinese; with the taste and flavors very different from both Indian and Chinese cuisine, it is a genre by itself. It is bold, varied, spicy – overall an experience by itself. The Indian Chinese flavors are also enjoyed by Indian and Chinese communities in Malaysia, and Singapore.
