From a dear Armenian friend. I have made this for 25 years. It is so easy and always comes out perfect. This to me is the true pilaf.

Good, but could benifet from some added spices or vegtables such as garlic or onion. Not having had Armenian food before, maybe this is supposed to be a "plain" side dish to other foods.
