Wow, what a lovely dish yakhni pilaf recipe is.. This is the first time when I searched its recipe, because before it was my sister who used to make lots of rice recipes for whole family members but now she is married.

what is meant by pilaf? I see it while searching recipes on internet , i see recipe names like yakhni pilaf, chicken pilaf, etc. etc. I think it is the other name of pulao but why it named differently? is there some difference in the recipe?
