Original Rally, bravo for chudesnat recipe!

It is not difficult, just time with the dough takes a little time. Good luck and tell how he received:-)

I love, I always wanted to do a real pilaf. In itself baking dough Does not moisten and can get out of the baking without sticking and serves as shown?

I do when I did it Peko in a metal bowl, but I guess in the form of cake will be the best fit. Not stuck anywhere. Shook good form, having it out. The dough is greasy and *slips* without problem.
