Perloo! One of my favorite dishes of all time. Perloo is from the Lowcountry of South Carolina and is the sister of Jambalaya with its French and Spanish influences and its origin is from the middle eastern dish called Pilau or pilaf. It seems every culture has its one pot meals. The Spanish have their Paella, Italians have their risotto, the Middle East have their Pilau and in America in different parts of the country we have ours like Chicken Bog, Perloo, and Jambalaya.
