Pilaf, also called polao, pilau
, pilav, pilaff, plov or pulao in their adopted languages (Azerbaijani, Turkish, Uzbek, Turkmen, Urdu, Hindi, Pashto, etc.), is a dish in which a grain, such as rice
or cracked wheat, is browned in oil, and then cooked in a seasoned broth. The English term pilaf is borrowed directly from Turkish, but all these terms ultimately derive from (Classical) Persian ??? , which is pronounced [pa?lau] in Afghani Persian (Dari), and in standard Iranian Persian, polow. In Urdu is pronounced pulao ????. Depending on the local cuisine, it may also contain a variety of meat and vegetables. Pilaf and similar dishes are common to Middle Eastern, Central and South Asian, East African, Latin American, and Caribbean cuisines.
