    ameatlanta's Note:

    This pilaf perfumes the whole house as it cooks! You will surely get ooohs and aaahs from this dish. I'm not sure of it's orgins since all of the ingredients could either be Morrocan or Persian. The garnish of pistachio nuts say Persian but the nuts could just as easy be pine nuts or almonds. Lamb fixed with mint would be great or a fragrant chicken dish to go along with this side.

      This was wonderful as is. But i always add more raisins and pine nuts because I love them so. This dish goes very well with a curry, too.

      Excellent - I used dates which were a subtle sweet touch and garnished with pistashios was fantastic. Very easy to make as well!
