Hyderabadi dum ka murgh is an interesting recipe that is cooked entirely in 'dum style'- a process of slow-cooking which results in a one-pot dish of aromatic and delightful flavours. Slow-cooking is most commonly used in biryanis but also leads to lip-smacking results when used in curries. It involves cooking the ingredients in a sealed, heavy bottomed vessel for hours or even overnight in some cases. The slow cooking works like magic in infusing the flavours of the spices and herbs and makes the meat tender.
