<p>I've been looking around the internet for a recipe for palao but I know so little about the dish I have no idea if what I am reading ingredients-wise is correct. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyone out there who has a good palao recipe that they can share with me?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks.</p>

<p>I don't know anything about Afgan cooking specifically, but I'm familiar with Persian/Iranian, Pakistani, Indian and Middle Eastern. What you are talking is basically a pilaf, there are tons of recipes with a variety of spices, vegetables and sometimes dried fruits and nuts. You can add fresh herbs at the end after it's cooked.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I usually start with the onions and cook them in some oil, usually until they are quite browned and crispy. Then I add the spices because you want to bring out their full flavors by cooking them in the hot oil. Then I add rice and cook it for a few minutes in the oil and then add stock, cover and lower the heat some and cook until done.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My favorite combo includes onions, ginger, cumin, coriander, turmeric, cardamom pods, cinnamon stick and cashews. </p>
