This is a quick and easy pilaf with my favorite spice--cardamom! If you don't have cardamom on hand, you can omit it--the pilaf is still delicious without it. I improvised it one evening when I was short of canned chicken broth and time. I like the recipe because it combines two of my favorite rices with lentils. The lentils add protein. The dish is a perfect accompaniment to chicken baked with a generous sprinkling of cardamom.
