Delicious Handi Dum Chicken - Mughlai Style


          This happens to be my first attempt at preparing this easy and delicious chicken curry, cooked in a handi or clay pot. The chicken is marinated in an array of spices overnight. It is then covered with a foil and simmered away to perfection in a dum style. Relish this delicacy with jeera rice, plain khushka Biryani, naan or tandoori roti. Please check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.





  • 300 gms chicken on bones, curry cut
  • 1" cinnamon stick
  • 2-3 green cardamoms
  • 5-6 cloves

  • pinch of nutmeg powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. red chili powder
  • 1 tsp. coriander-cumin powder
  • 1 tsp. garam masala powder
  • 1/2 cup fried onions
  • 1-2 green chilies, chopped
  • 1 tsp. ginger-garlic paste

  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 2-3 tbsp. oil

          Marinate the chicken in all the above mentioned ingredients (except oil and onions) overnight. Heat oil in a handi and fry the onions till light brown.

          Take the chicken pieces out of the marinade and add to the onions. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Now add the marinade and stir well for 2 minutes.

          Cover the handi with an aluminium foil and simmer on a very low flame for 15 minutes. Switch off the flame and keep it covered for 5-10 minutes. Serve hot with naan, tandori roti or jeera rice.
