    UmmBinat's Note:

    A nice simple and tasty pilaf. I sometimes use chicken stock in replacment of the meat one. It's a must to use basmati! Very good with Braised Lamb (Tas Kebap). Basically the recipe from The Complete Middle East Cookbook by Tess Mallos

      Really good. I made it with slivered almonds instead of pine nuts and it was delicious.
