I can’t even begin to tell you how delicious this pilaf is and I am kicking myself for not trying it out before. I must admit, my mum never cooked it at home so I had to research it in Turkish. The original is a non-vegan one however, many non-meat ones are quite popular by the looks of things. Since I had quite a few banana chillies in my fridge at the moment, I thought this was the right time ..
