I Enough dahi (curd) to coat the chicken you are using I A pinch of turmeric I 1 stick of ginger, roughly chopped I few cloves of garlic as per your taste, roughly chopped I 2-3 onions, roughly chopped I 2-3 tomatoes, roughly chopped I 2-3 green chillies I salt as per taste I some whole spices — cloves, bay leaf, aniseed — you can even use kesar if you wish I 1tsp powdered garam masala.
Coat the chicken with the dahi, and spice powders. Marinate for about 1 hour. Put in everything akha (whole) into a handi. (This dish uses absolutely no oil and water). Seal the handi with atta and let it cook in its own juices for about 45 mins to an hour. At the end you should have a soupy consistency — dum chicken.
