Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe and post for Moroccan Pilaf.
Pilaf is just a fancy name for rice cooked by absorbing stock usually with some vegetables and seasoning.
I’ve made a Moroccan version seasoned with ras el hanout and packed full of sultanas, pistachio nuts and pomegranate. This makes a perfect stand alone meal but also a great side dish with roast chicken. Any leftovers also works well cold for lunch. If you have any left that is!
