DNSMasq - disable DHCP while keeping DNS resolver

I would like to my OpenWRT router as a switch + DNS resolver/forwarder. DHCP would collide with another DHCP server on the network so I need to shut it down. I have DNS resolver configs for DNSMasq already, so I would prefer to stay with DNSMasq rather than looking for another DNS forwarder. Any hits how to disable DHCP and keep DNS resolver part?
Thanks in advance

I did something similar via UI but I have encountered strange behavior that DHCP/DNS section in web interface was blank so i thought is has something to do with miss-configuration. After removing dnsmasq package, reinstalling it again and following your guide everything is working well.
So it is resolved,
many thanks
