Pina Colada Pilaf!

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Elmotoo

No, it's not too sweet! It is easy & delicious! Made for RSC Lucky #13. This does make quite a bit but it didn't last long in our family. It can be a side dish or served under a curry dish.

Top Review by Chef PotPie

We loved this rice dish. The subtle hint of the cinnamon and cardamom made it different than any pilaf I've made, and the other ingredients were creative and went well together. It was a pretty dish, too! Because of all the ingredients it does make a lot, and it will get eaten here! Thanks, Elmotoo, you had your groove on when you created this dish! ZWT9
