Print Friendly and PDF
On the previous post we gave you the super delicious recipe for chickpea casserole. Of course pilaf makes a perfect couple with this casserole. In our previous posts you can find the recipes for both rice and bulgur pilafs. This recipe is different version, richer in ingredients.


  • 1 cup of rice (washed and strained)
  • 1 green pepper (chopped)
  • 1 red pepper (chopped)
  • 1 cup of chickpeas (boiled and stained - see previous recipe for boiling)
  • 1 and a 1/2 cups of boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil or 1 tablespoon of butter
  • salt
  1. Saute the peppers in the the butter or olive oil in a pot for 2 minutes.
  2. Add the rice and cook for 3 minutes more, stir now and then.
  3. Add the chickpeas, boiling water and salt. Stir the mixture and leave to simmer with lid closed for 10 minutes.
  4. Wrap in a blanket and leave to steep for 15 minutes.

Don't ask! You'll never get an answer!
  • If you have any questions you should read the other pilaf recipes first, if you are not lazy. 
  • If you are asking about what the blanket is for, it's for the pilaf so it doesn't catch a cold...
  • Too bad again, I couldn't stop myself and wrote some answers to your probable questions.
