    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    This recipe is from last week's 'Thursday' magazine. It won Sajida Wasim Shaikh a gift voucher of R.O. 20/- to the Golden Oryx restaurant here in Oman! 'Nawabi' is an Indian(Hindi) word which means "Royal" as in, "Of the Nawabs"(i.e., people belonging to the Royal family). Preparing and cooking this pilaf takes a long time, but seeing the tempting picture in the magazine and reading this recipe, does make me feel very sure that this one's the "jackpot" of all the non-vegetarian pilaf recipes I have so far come across/tried. I'm sure you'll like this!
