Kenyan Pilau Rice Recipe

Kenyan pilau is a rice-based specialty that is popular along the Swahili coast. The dish consists of rice that is flavored with a variety of spices and cooked in a broth made from meat or fish.

Typical spices include ginger, garlic, cumin, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, and fried onions.

This pilau variety is traditionally prepared and served for special occasions and celebrations.

It can be enriched by the addition of potatoes, tomatoes, and raisins. Originally, pilau was brought to Africa by the Arabs, and later on, it was brought to America by enslaved Africans.
