Südlü/shirin plov

Sudlu plov

COUNTRY:

A sweet milk pilaf from Azerbaijan, one of just many variations of ‘plov’ to choose from. Dates, sultanas and apricots lift the milky rice and add a nice little bite. Best served warm – not hot!

Be warned: this is v. moreish and you will overload on carbs. Totally worth it though.

Time: 35 mins   /   Serves: 4   /   DIFFICULTY: Medium

Ingredients
200g basmati rice
330ml milk
80g unsalted butter

Steps

    Wash the rice!

    Put the milk, butter and saffron infused water into a saucepan, then add the rice. Bring to the boil and then leave to simmer until 2/3 of the milk has been absorbed.
