On Thursday I was cooking marinated pork chops and I wanted to make a side dish to accompany the dish. There were some spring onions, parsley and mushrooms in the refrigerator, which had to be used, so looking in my pantry I had some parboiled rice, vermicelli and cashews so I decided to combine all these ingredients together.

Actually the cooking of this recipe was a combination of the Cypriot pilaf I make with vermicelli and of risotto.

The pilaf was so delicious that you could eat it as a main dish.
