Who doesn’t like a simple yet flavorful one pot rice dish? I am always on the look out of such recipes. Pilaf or Pulao are my go-to recipes always at home but I cook them mainly with vegetables, chicken or paneer. But Turkish Pilaf with Dry Fruits & Apricots is a very easy yet great substitute to the veggie filled pilaf. Also there are days when the fridge has no fresh veggies but the kitchen closet has enough dry fruits.
I think I created this recipe few months back when we had a sudden guest at home and I have this overpowering nature of feeding whoever visits me home. And I did ask the guest to stay back for a quick meal only to realize I have no vegetables at home. And this quite dry fruits filled Pilaf was appreciated back then and is even today. I say if you are facing something similar at home ever, this will save you.
I used Sella Rice which is a variety of the regular Basmati rice. I love the firm texture that this rice has and is perfect for sturdy pilaf or Biryani recipes. You can ofcourse use any Basmati rice, try and get the long grain one for the amazing aroma. Anyways, I don’t want to keep typing over and over about this amazing one pot wonder, and would like you to try it too.
Let me know if you give this a try. And yes thank me later 🙂
