Step by step instruction of cooking Shah-pilaf
Fold in a bowl, stir and pour boiling water

Mix the rice with the contents of the pan. Try as you taste. Align salt, pepper and other spices.
Pita bread, this pilaf need to buy dense, in any case not thin as paper, otherwise pilaf can fall apart. I took 2 packs of 2 sheets each. Slice the pita bread on the longest side of the strips about 5 cm wide. The length of the strips should be enough to cover the risotto on top.
