Classic Pilaf Rice

Pilaf is one of the all time classic rice dishes going back all the way to the first century Persians. By combining the very finest extra long grain rice with a subtle chicken and butter flavor, special herbs and spices and delicately toasted wheat pasta, known as orzo, Mahatma has brought the dish up-to-date, making it simple to prepare for everyday meals.
