The basic (no nonsense) Armenian recipe!

Recipe Ingredients for ARMENIAN PILAF

1 cup rice
2 oz vermicelli, crumbled into 1 inch long pieces
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for ARMENIAN PILAF

  1. Add vermicelli and butter in a deep, covered pan suitable for cooking rice. Heat until the vermicelli is golden brown. Add rice, chicken broth and water and mix well. Bring to a boil and then lower heat and simmer for 25 minutes until rice is cooked. Turn heat off and let sit a few minutes. Stir the pilaf and serve.

  2. Rice pilaf should not be gummy or salty. It is a very subtle side dish, and is a compliment to poultry, fish, lamb and veal.

  3. Some interesting variations to the basic recipe above would be the addition of pine nuts and minced dry apricots, or sauteing 1/4 cup of minced yellow onions or scallions in the butter just after browning off the vermicelli.
