This rice pilaf is super simple and quite delicious indeed. I made half of the recipe and it came together smoothly and quickly. I only had ground cardamom and so I just tossed about 1/8 tsp ground cardamom in right before I added the rice.
I found the awesome bowl at a garage sale, and have been using it as much as I can. The pink chopstick came in a set with four other colours: green, blue, orange and yellow. I am not very efficient with chopsticks, but I am slowly getting better.
