    Kitchen Mama of 3's Note:

    This is an amazing rice side dish with complex flavors, but simple prep! It has a sweet and salty element to it and the spices will make your kitchen SING! Originally made for a Girl Scout function, but EVERYONE loved it and it is now a family favorite! (Found on a Nepali website.) Also re-heats easily. The golden raisins add the most delicious bit of sweet to the rice!

      I was a little disappointed, and my family left a lot on their plates. It fell a little short of amazing in the flavor category.

      Very delicious recipe. I didn't have one bit of trouble making this dish for the first time. I did add a couple of teaspoons of ghee and substituted low salt mixed nuts instead of only cashews because I love fried peanuts and almonds, as well, in my pulau. No one in my family likes raisins, especially cooked raisins, so I omitted that. Although, I did cook the recipe on the stove, you can also cook it in a rice cooker after you fry everything for even fluffier rice. Overall, a good Nepali recipe that is very authentic tasting.

      Utterly amazing! Wow. I did not have whole cloves on hand, so cautiously added ground ones, and that was fine. We had two guests from Italy staying with us last week, and I wanted something different for our supper of grilled pork tenderloin, and these Italians had two helpings each, exclaiming *E' MOLTO buona!* Very, very good, and goes in my recipe file right now!
