Pilaf with lamb and prunes

Cooking description:

My pilaf is meat, from lamb, but you can take any other meat to taste. The dish is not at all sweet, as it might seem at first glance due to the presence of prunes. Although prunes give off their sweetness, their taste gives pilaf a special piquancy. I highly recommend trying it! Your loved ones and guests will be satisfied!

Prepare all ingredients.

Add water (it should be about 1 cm higher than the rice), salt to taste and cook over high heat until the rice is half cooked. The rice should almost completely absorb all the water. Then collect the contents of the cauldron to the center, cover with a plate, close the cauldron with a lid on top and cook pilaf for another 10 minutes over medium heat.
