    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    The word pilaf is enough to send me right to the dining table with a mouth that can't wait any longer to begin my meal. This is a wonderful pilaf(pulao) from the Thursday magazine dated August 10-16'06. Enjoy!

      This is absolutely an awesome side dish! I made this along with a Moroccan style chicken and it was a hit. I used chicken broth instead of water and did the 2:1 ratio for liquids, 2 cups liquid to 1 cup rice and it was perfectly moist, also I didn't have almonds so I used walnuts, it was still great. Easy to make! Definitely on my permanent menu!

      This was really good. I used ordinary parboiled white rice, and it was still tasty and spicy. I really enjoyed the sweetness of the raisins contrasted with the spicy rice.
