Chicken Biryani

This is my way of preparing this delicious chicken biryani. I used to cook this way for quite a long time. Everyone in my family and even my friends love this biryani. My brother used to call me as "biryani master" just b'coz of this biryani . I usually prepare this dish quite fast and preparing briyani has always been easy to me. When ever I decide to quit eating non-veg ,just the thought of this biryani does not allow me to. I am a very great lover of biryanis so atleast once in two weeks I would prepare this dish. Here is the recipe of the delicious chicken biryani . I am drooling now.
