Golden basmati rice studded with dried apricots and almonds gets an exotic flavour from saffron and rose water in this unique but easy to make Persian pilaf.
Followed the recipe except for using some vegetable broth for part of the water and omitting the rose water, since I could not find it. I wouldn't say that this is my favorite pilaf, but it does have good eye appeal, and is flavorful. Next time, I think I will add some cardamon as suggested by the recipe writer, and rose water, if I ever can find it. - 18 Jan 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a truly lovely and different dish, that I will definitely make again. The rosewater, which I found in a middle eastern grocery store, was a little frightening at first, because it smelled like a bottle of perfume! However, when added to the dish, it became much more subtle and really made the dish special. The only thing I did differently was to toast the almonds.
