This Pilau dish will remind you of a tasty risotto with an american twist. It is much easier to make for large parties. Sophisticated, easy and tasty...just the way I like it.

    This is a great recipe for a large group. Easy to prepare and pretty to serve. I would recommend making a separate pot for kids and using less cayenne pepper. You might try some lemon wedges on the side, too!

    This is a variation
