    Pets'R'us's Note:

    This pilaf is nice served with pork or chicken. You can use tinned/canned pineapple, but then try to use those in natural juice. I sometimes add 4-6 oz frozen peas.

      Honestly, I was a bit nervous about this dish, as it is much different than anything Ive ever made. However, I found it to be absolutely delicious! I added a bit of ground cardamom as Rita did, because I thought it was an excellent suggestion :-) I loved the addition of pineapples and raisins! I cant eat pineapple very often, but boy this is worth it. The dish is fabulous!!! I served with a bit of chopped parsley to garnish. Thanks for this wonderful recipe! I might even be able to get my family to try this next time I am home, hehe. Thanks again!!!

      Loved this served it with our Easter ham. I did have to skip the heat because of the company. But will make it again with it. I also added ground cardamom in place of the coriander.

      We love this recipe! I use toasted pine nuts instead of cashwe nuts and it is divine. Thank you Pets'R'Us
