Pilau is without a doubt a favourite Kenyan dish.  Serve it with Kachumbari (tomato cherry salsa with fresh spinach & coriander). This variation is with beef. Raisins are added for good measure. You are free to experiment too!  Pilau can be also made using chicken, lamb or goat meat.  You can get the pilau masala mix at any Indian or Afro-Caribbean store around you. Many supermarkets have it too! Enjoy your meal!
