Today we are going to make Dum Ka Chicken which is very famous Hyderabadi Dish and itis available almost in every Hyderabadi Restaurants but you can't find it anywhere else outsideHyderabad it is very popular in Hyderabad and he is going to tell us the Ingredientswhich is used in restaurants because he worked in many restaurants and he is very talentedman and he knows Thousands of Indian Recipes which is a very good thing without studyingbecause it was his Hobby and then he started his Profession, he is working in this Industriessince last 17 Years so which is a very good thing about it.
For Dum Chicken you will need 2 medium size sliced Onions, 300 gms Chicken, around 1/2Cup Mint Leaves, 1/2 Cup Coriander Leaves and with these you will need Tomato Ketchup,Chili Sauce both of them around 1 1/2 tsp, 25 gms Ground Nuts, 25 gms Sesame Seeds, 25 gms Dried Coconuts, somedried Fenugreek Leaves which is known as Kasuri Methi, 100 gms of Curd or Yogurt, Pure Gheearound 2 tsp, in the whole spices you will need some Cinnamon Sticks, 7-8 Cloves, 6 CardamomPorts, Shah Zira, they use this in lot's of Hyderabadi Dishes, it is very expansive, 1tsp Chicken Masala, 1/2 tsp Garam Masala, 1/2 tsp Coriander and Cumin Seeds Powder,1 1/2 tsp Red Chili Powder, 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder, 2 tsp Garlic and Ginger Paste, forfrying you will need Oil.
First a fall he is heating Oil, he is goingto fry onions in it until it become Golden Brown, now he is going to chop the coconutso he can make the nice and fine paste from it, you have to fry all of them so it willgive nice flavor to it, normally in Hyderabad they fry everything because it will add theUnique Hyderabadi style flavor in it.
In another pan he is adding some ghee around1 tsp, now he is adding some Cinnamon in it, 3-4 Cloves,2-3 Cardamoms and very little Shah Zira, Shah Zira is looking very much like Cumin Seeds,you will find it in any Indian Grosser shop very easily, normally in Hyderabad peopledon't do this but he is very expert in doing it and he always like to do experiment withthe recipes so he is frying everything in Ghee because it will add very unique flavorto the Dum Chicken, seriously it is very good masala and I hope it will give the amazingtaste and specially the flavors of Hyderabad, when it become light golden brown you haveto turn heat off, now he has turned the heat off.
Now Oil get heated so he is adding Onion in it, you have to fry onion until it becomegolden brown and little crispy, meanwhile he is going to make the paste from the Groundnut, Coconut and whole dry spices, normally people use water to make Puree but he willmake it moist by using Curd in it, it will give a unique flavor and it will be totallydifferent from other recipes, he is adding little water in it so everything can be combinedtogether nicely and paste will become very smooth and nice, now the paste is ready sohe is going to take this out in a bowl.
When the onion become red then he will addeverything together into the chicken, now the onion is ready, see it is very dark incolor and perfectly fried so he is going to take this out in a plate, it is a Traditionin Hyderabad to add fried onion and also it is a unique way to define Hyderabadi dishesin most of the Hyderabadi Biryanis and Chicken dishes they add brown Onion to add good textureand flavor to it.
Now in a cooker he is adding Chicken withthe bones, coriander leaves and mint leaves, whole dry spices, now he is going to mix everythingcoriander leaves and mint leaves, dry spices, now he is adding green chili sauce, tomatoketchup, dried fenugreek leaves, coriander seeds powder, red chili powder, very littleturmeric powder around 1/4 tsp, Garam masala, chicken masala, now he is adding around 1tsp ghee in it, now he is going to mix all the things very well, you can also add the lemon juice in it but forthe sour he add yogurt so it will give the better taste than the lemon juice, he added2 tsp garlic and ginger paste and salt to taste, he has added some ajinomoto.
You should marinate it for at least 1/2 an hour but you can also marinate it for 1 houror 2 hour it depends on time that you have, now he is adding some deep fried onions init, he is crushing it with hands and then yogurt, now he is adding ground nut and coconut paste in it, now heis mixing and combining everything together.
In many Indian Restaurants they add colorhe want to keep everything natural and homemade but it will give the same taste as you getin any Hyderabadi restaurants, now he is adding 2-3 tsp hot Oil in it in which we have fried onions, you should leave it asidefor at least 1/2 an hour so chicken will absorb all the flavors, now he is covering it forat least 10-15 mins, now it is almost ready but you have to add 100 ml water in it.
Usually it is made in a copper utensils but here we don'thave so he is doing it in a cooker, it is also a good way to do in home, you have tosteam your chicken for just 10 mins and then it will be ready, if you do it this way thanit will be very good for the chicken because after cooking it for 10 mins if you turn theheat off and keep it in a cooker for 2-3 mins then it will start cooking by its steam itselfand it will cook entire batch without sticking masala into the bottom of the cooker.
Now it is ready so he is going to serve this so Dum Ka Chicken is ready to serve.
