Dum Chicken ( without oil and extra water )

Whole garam masalas

4 cloves
4 cardamom
2 star anise
2 cinnamon sticks
1 bay leaf

Atta dough

Mix 1/4 cup atta with 1 - 2 tablespoon water. Make soft dough.


Coat chicken pieces with fresh dahi , garam masala and turmeric powder. Marinate for 1 hour.

Put in everything whole into handi.

Seal the handi with atta dough ( same produre of ‘’ dum biryani “ ) and let it cook in its juice for about 45 minutes on low heat . Seal the edges very tightly.

At the end you should have a soup consistency. Serve with phulkas / rice/ veg pulao.

I made this Dum chicken for lunch. Gravy is very delicious and as soon as we opened the seal of dum chicken , kitchen filled with a nice aroma...just like chicken biryani...!!!!
