This is a wonderful pilaf recipe. I made this for a family friend who is coming over with his family to celebrate his 40th birthday in my house today. I used Sunflower cooking oil as a substitute for butter. I used an additional 3/4th cup of water as well. I garnished this with some chopped green onions and some raisins. This rice is very impressive and pretty when served on a bed of Iceberg lettuce. Thanks for this recipe!
