Pilau originates from India. It taste and look very differetn from the Indian pilau. Tanzanian pilau use more spices than Indian pilau. It has become a favorite Tanzanian rice dish. Pilau has a very unique taste. Although in Tanzania it is traditionally cooked with meat and vegetables, I do not eat meat as much, I hope people like me would like this simple meatless pilau.
