    The most beautiful dish and so yummy, too. Will definitely impress guests. I used jasmine rice instead of basmati because I love its nutty flavor. Otherwise made as directed. Served with roasted chicken and peas.

    This was unexpectedly good. I had pomegranate seeds on hand which was a time-saver, but it was still a fair bit of work zesting, juicing and sectioning the clementines, which I used in place of oranges. I was wondering if it would be worth all the effort, but I put everything together and tasted it, and wow! I think the toasted pine nuts add a lot of the flavor. We ate this lukewarm (a little wierd), but heated or cold I think this would still be good. I served this alongside CL Pan-Roasted Chicken Cutlets with Maple-Mustard Dill Sauce (November 2006), and I would probably make it again.
