Aromatic Bangladeshi chicken pilau

Why so delicious, chicken pilau?

I hate eating the same meal for dinner more than once every few weeks. Seriously, why would someone subject themselves to the almost physical pain of eating the same meal over and over, when there are innumerable other masterpieces waiting to be created and devoured?

There are exceptions to my disdain for repetition, and chicken pilau is one of them. When I had the entire house to myself and Harry (the dog) for a few days, I ate it five times. Dinner. A second dinner after the first. The following day: breakfast, lunch and dinner.
