Cooking juicy pilaf:

Step 1: prepare the pic.

Pour the rice into a sieve and rinse under running water until the liquid becomes clear. Thanks to this process, pilaf will turn out to be crumbly and very tasty. We leave the container with the component aside so that excess water comes out of it.

Step 2: prepare the onion.

Using a knife, peel the onion from the husk and rinse thoroughly under running water. We lay out the component on a cutting board and grind it with squares or half rings. Then we move the finely chopped onion into a clean plate and leave it aside for a while.

After the allotted time, lightly salt the meat and add chopped onions with carrots to it. Having mixed the ingredients again with improvised stock, we continue to fry for some time until the vegetables are soft and the meat is covered with a golden brown.

Now we pour pure water into the container, and also pour out spices for pilaf, barberry and rice. Using a tablespoon, level the surface of the last component. Important: in no case do not mix the dish. Rice should be covered with water no less than by 1.5-2 centimeters. After boiling, slightly reduce the heat and simmer pilaf until all the liquid has been absorbed. During this time, the rice should become crumbly. Immediately after that we put the cloves of garlic into the cauldron and squeeze them inland with a tablespoon. We cover the container with a lid and continue to cook additionally 20 minutes. After the allotted time, turn off the burner, and set the cauldron aside with the help of kitchen tacks.
