Nowadays we always get country chicken instead of broiler chicken due to its health benefits. Country chicken is also good for cold and cough. I am big fan of Biryani and always try different methods. This is one the best biryani I did and it tasted so good similar to one we get in restaurants. My hubby and kids liked it a lot. Though I make Chicken/Mutton Biryani often, somehow it will get missed to be documented in my blog. Finally today posting the recipe.

Notes

We always get country chicken with skin and turmeric applied

You can increase green chilli or red chilli powder for more spiciness. This is mild spicy suitable for kids.

Making sure water is completely dry when cooking chicken before adding water

Cooking time of country chicken depends on the type we get. Original country chicken takes around 7-8 whistles to cook

You can pressure cook the chicken first and them add water, rice and cook.

Make sure while measuring water you measure the chicken stock too
