This dish is a Changeling from the Mediterranean cuisine, and in particular, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and other Arab countries up to Egypt. Preparing is quite simple. Very original taste due to the presence in the recipe of spices - cinnamon, coriander and nutmeg. In my opinion, the dish is very different from a pilaf. It has a soft and mellow taste. I recommend to try!
