Turkish dolma pilav also called iç pilav is a spiced pilav-style rice dish that can be used to make stuffed grape leaves, cabbage rolls, or to stuff vegetables like green peppers or zucchini. It can also be served as a side dish, usually with poultry or lamb, or as a main course with liver.

  1. Wash the rice until the water runs clear.
  2. Sauté pine nuts and onions over medium heat in a deep skillet with lid

  4. Add the rice and stir constantly until the rice turns translucent
  5. Add water, enough to cover the rice and cook on low heat.
  6. When the water is absorbed, check the rice. Add more water or spices if needed.
