Hello i'd try this.

in coova chilli set the dhcpgateway to (loopback ip), then the
dhcplisten parameter should be coovachilli's ip address. set the
dhcpgateway port to 67.

in dnsmasq set the listen ip to and the listen interface to tun0.

i dont have a way of trying that right now but it may work. please let me
know if it works
