    Manami's Note:

    This beautiful rice dish , studded with apricots and crsip apples is inspired by an ancient Persian dish that was made for the royal court. My occupational therapist brought me some when she made it for one of the holidays and I loved it! True, I don't think I would like a steady diet of it but it has different & interesting flavors and it grows on you. We have made it twice already and have already made some small changes, have also made it with vegetable broth so that it can be used for a vegetarian diet.
