    Anu's Note:

    This is my very own, 100% original recipe for an authentic Indian "pulao". The word "pilaf" is distortion of the word "pulao" which simply means a rice dish cooked with veggies and spices. This tastes great with a spicy raita, or with plain yogurt. Using margarine makes this a vegan.

      This was beeeeautiful! I increased the servings to 4, I soaked the rice for about 20 minutes before using. It was delicious hot and superb cold... this is certainly going to be used by me veeery often. Thanks Anu!

      I really liked this. It was a really yummy pulao, and easy to do. My only quibble is that the rice cooking times were off for me, but otherwise this was gold.

      I hate to do this, but this was okay. I did exactly as written and mine turned out "soggy" and bland. It smelled wonderful when I was sauteing the rice with the spices and while it simmered. I'm not sure what happened. I will try to make this again and see how it turns out the 2nd time. I always like to try something twice just incase I missed something the first time. It almost seemed like there was too much water.
