Vary the spicing, adding one or two whole cloves, a pinch of saffron or a little turmeric to ring the changes with this great rice dish. You can also substitute chicken or prawns for the lamb.
I made it following the recipe. Tasted fine but looked a bit bland and could have done with a bit of contrasting flavour. I will make it again but will add extras, maybe dried apricots and sultanas. - 18 Nov 2012
