Hi Isha, I always used this brand, "National" for chicken Biryani mix spice, May I know what brand of spice you used for making Chicken Biryani,may be we can compared.

i always use 'shan masala bombay biryani' but if theres no stock in the shop sometimes i use 'shan masala sindhi biryani' or 'laziza international brand'
National brand is quite good as well, but i never use it, my friend use national masala. and taste good too.
