Master the essentials, and the pilaf world is open to you hereafter. This pilaf offers a delicious combination of earthy, crunchy hazelnuts with citrus backnotes, with a little extra zing–is it the chilli or the cumin?
Recipes can specify the volume of water for a certain weight of rice, but in the kitchen it depends on the size of your pan as well as the level of heat, and even the type of rice you use. My tip is to start with a little less water than you think you might need, and to add more from the kettle if necessary at the end of cooking. Do it a few times and you have a skill learned for life.
