Dum Chicken Rum Biryani#SundayFunday

This is super delicious and makes a complete meal. The rum gives a delicious taste to this biryani, try it and you will definitely love it. It's not spicy but yum!! I have added potatoes, since for me biryani is incomplete with potatoes, I love them in biryani.
