Chicken dum biryani is a mouth watering one pot dish where spices play major role and its taste can never be substituted with any other food item according to me. Chicken dum biryani is a slow cooking process where the rice is steam cooked. I always prefer to prepare dum biryani over the regular biryani as its flavor and taste is distinct.
