 RAMADAN MUBARAK!!! 

How quickly Ramadan came about,
even the first week is nearly over!
Friday night supper, still has to be Jummah lunch inspired,
which is why I had to share this recipe with you. 
First Friday of Ramadan why don't try something yummy and different.

Bukhari Pilau is a Saudi Arabian specialty (some say it is of Afgani origin),
it is a favorite in my family, 
and no one makes it better than my granny's sister in SA.
Friday's keep coming and going so quickly,
it's so hard to come up with new dishes.
Even though I am not a mutton person I still love the flavors of the dish,
so much so that I eat it minus the meat.
