Turkey Recipes - Pilavs

Pilav or Pilaf is a bastion of the Turkish diet. Often made of rice it is also be made of of bulgur (cracked wheat) and sometimes sehriye (vermicelli)

Traditionally Pilav is served as a main dish by itself, usually with the addition of meat, chicken or fish, however nowadays it is often served as an accompaniment to meat or chicken dishes. These pilavs can be made lighter by substituting the meat with vegetables such as aubergines, peas and beans or chickpeas.

The variations are endless but the one characteristic which is vital to the dish is that the rice should not be sticky. Unlike Italian Risotto, it should separate into individual grains.

Below are some pilav recipes for you to try but do experiment with whatever fresh produce you have to hand.
