Richly fragrant golden saffron rice pilaf (pilau) that's delicately scented with rose water & studded with pistachios, almonds, and sultanas, combined with moist, tender chunks of chicken infused with lemon, yogurt and musky spices: this is a FABULOUS one-dish meal! Inspired by a Nigella Lawson recipe, from one of her cookbooks. Wonderful served warm, or at room temperature. Enjoy!
Forget sautéing the onions, adding that blasted bay leaf, or the boring chicken bouillon to your rice. All you need is a nice plain, simple rice to accompany all your stews and saucy or juicy foods. The peas in this recipe bring out the wonderful taste of rice.
Posting for ZWT6 for Iranian dishes. This is a recipe from the "The BBQ Bible" No Persian meal would be complete without rice. Here is a simple steamed rice recipe that is great with an of the Persian kebab recipes.

pretty much the base food for every meal that we cook. the "hikaka" at the bottom is an absolute must.. its an arab delicacy lol. note, if you try it, that the water amount probably isnt accurate. i dont measure things with a measuring cup-- just cover the rice with about 1/2" of water. also for easier removal, this works best with a nonstick pot
Using brown rice adds more fiber and is a little easier on the blood sugar if you happen to be a diabetic. This is a different rice to serve with Mexican dishes. This recipe goes especially well with chicken topped mole. The recipe is adapted from a Betty Crocker cookbooklet, March 1994.
