Brown Rice Chicken Biryani

I love the aroma and taste of any biryani.. and even though this brown rice chicken biryani takes so much time to cook, it has to be one of my favourite meals to cook and almost the only thing that comes to my mind when I am super hungry. This dish is a perfect combination of flavours and goes really well with some natural yoghurt and pickled lemons.
