Pilau is one of the dishes prepared only when there is a ceremony or during the weekends. It is a rice dish flavored with spices and prepared in stock whereby poultry, meat, fish or hard-boiled eggs may be added. It is originally a dish from West India but is now popular in the coastal areas of Tanzania. This meal is usually served with Kachumbari, an uncooked salad dish made up of chopped tomatoes, chili peppers and onions.
Pilau has a nick name, the Maasai Tribes man call it Wali Chafu as the rice turn from white to brown
