Recipe by GiddyUpGo

This recipe is from week two of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every country in the world, and Afghanistan is my second stop. Kabuli Pulao has been called "The National Food of Afghanistan." It is a flavorful rice dish, usually served with lamb or beef.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the carrots and raisins in butter. Set them aside.
  2. Heat about a tablespoon of oil in a medium sized pan and cook the onions until translucent. Then add the rice and broth, bring to a boil, cover and cook for 20 minutes until the rice is tender.
  3. Add the spices to hot oil and cook for a few seconds, until fragrant. Then add the meat and saute until just done.
  4. Place the meat in an oven-safe dish, then cover it with the rice and bake at 250 degrees for 20 minutes.
