Ghi | N | Dha | Dhin | - | N | Dha | Tin
Ghi | N | Dha | Tin | - | N | Na | Tin

OR
I play normally like this

Ghi | N | Dha | Dhin | - | N | Na | Tin
Ki | N | Ta | Dhin | - | N | Dha | Tin

If you find it difficult, then best way to start with this basic version
Ghi | N | Na | Tin | - | N | Na | Tin
Ki | N | Na | Tin | - | N | Na | Tin

once you are comfortable with basic version, then you will naturally find where to add baya

Sorry, may I ask you the explanation of GHI and N?
Thank you, Frank (I guess I've been studying with different bols vocabulary) :? :)

Ghi = Ge, open sound on baya with finger
N = Ne = DhiNeGeNe = Ta of TiRaKiTa = Closed sound on Daya ink with last three/two fingers

Thanks for the explanation Dhatitdha.
In my studies NE could be played with the index on the Sur, or could be with the 3rd and fourth finger together on the right side (sur) of the dayan.

In my learning i've been taught to play ti with the middle finger. I've seen in a lot of videos that it seems like people play fast kherwa with only the index. Do you have any idea about that?

I listened to the video at 1.15 min at a very slow speed ( setting at 0.25 ) on my lap top. Essentially very similar to what Dhatidha pointed out except I think he is playing
Dha N Dha Dhin, Ta N Ta Tin
Ta N Ta Tin, Dha N Dha Dhin
( Ta on Na on the kinar) , N or Ne on the right side of Syahi as pointed out.
Use of bayan (Tin or Dhin, or Na or Dha) is a bit judgmental,but there is definitely a Dayan sound with each beat in both the lines ( listen at 1.29 min when he is just playing on the Dayan for a few seconds)

You can watch this Tej Singh's video for the Dhatidha's version on this:
