Have had some really cool and chilly weather here in Saskatchewan in July - making this dish a great addition to the evening meal a few weeks back. Used Susan Lee's Perfect Brown Rice which makes for perfect brown rice each and every time. Other than not having green peas on hand I made as posted - loved this combination of ingredients used in this Pilau.(we are very fond of brown rice making this a real find) A keeper for sure!
