Serve with Pilaf
Pilaf [PEE-lahf; PIH-lahf] This rice or bulghur based dish originated in the Near East and always begins by first browning the rice in butter or oil before cooking it in stock. Pilafs can be variously seasoned and usually contain other ingredients such as chopped vegetables, meats, seafood or poultry. In India they’re highly spiced with curry. Pilaf can be served as a side dish or main dish.
