Plov, Pilaf

This is not a traditional Moldavian Cuisine for sure. It comes from Uzbekistan if i'm not wrong. Plov is very tasty and healthy. Even if it is very spread and a lot of people cook it everyday, it has a special technology of cooking. And only good cookers can make a real Plov.

The ingredients are:
Meat, traditionally it is pork or beef, I use chicken sometime
rice
onions
carrots
spices

Method of preparing:
Firstly fry the meat, until it is almost ready. As you see in the first picture, after you fried the meat, add the onions and carrots.

Than add the rice. I chose the Chinese prolonged rice as you can see in the picture. The secret is that you add the rice, which has to cover the meat with 1 cm, and that add some water, which will cover the rice up to 2 cm. And cover it, and don't mix until it gets ready.
