Pilaf with Snails

Pilaf with Snails

Ingredients:
1 kilo of snails
1 chopped onion
2 chopped cloves of garlic
1 cup of hard yellow rice
1 cup of oil
½ wine glass of lemon juice
½ wine glass of white wine
1 bunch of dill, chopped
Salt, pepper

Instructions:
Prepare the snails and as soon as they are boiled, remove their kernel by using a toothpick. Sauté the garlic and the onion in the oil and then sauté the snails for a while. Add some oil, salt and pepper, the dill and 3 cups of water. As soon as it starts to boil, add the rice and mix it in medium temperature, until it becomes crumby enough. Then, add the lemon juice and the wine. Mix it for the last time and cover it. Turn the stovetop off and let the rice imbibe the whole water.
