Mushroom Pilaf in the Oven

(Guvecte Mantarli Pilav)

Mushroom Pilaf in the Oven
1/2 cup rice, washed, drained
1 tbsp butter
1 medium sized onion, chopped
7-8 medium sized mushrooms, cleaned, sliced
1 tbsp sweet peas, frozen
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp pepper
Salt
1 cup hot water
2 tbsp dill, chopped

Cover:
1 medium sized yellow potato, boiled, peeled, grated
1 large egg yolk
1 tbsp milk
Salt
Pepper

Saute the onion and mushrooms with the butter in a medium sized pot for about 4-5 minutes until all the water evaporates. Add the rice, sweet peas, allspice, salt and pepper, then toss. Add the hot water, stir. Cover the lid. Turn the heat down to low and cook until the rice absorbs all the water. Then add chopped dill, and toss.

Divide into 2 individual ovenproof bowls. Put aside.

To make the cover; mix the grated potato, egg yolk, milk, salt and pepper. Cover the pilaf with this mixture in the bowls. Place the bowls on the oven tray. Set the oven to broil (grill). Place the oven tray on the top rack and cook until the tops take a golden colour for about 10 minutes.

2 servings.

Made this and it was so good! I didn't have all spice so I used a little bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper and 1 clove. Thanks for the great recipes!

I made this wonderful dish and my entire family loved it. I blogged about it at The Crispy Cook. Thanks for such a great recipe. I'm anxious to try some others that I've bookmarked here.
