Saute nuts, carrots and cauliflower in 1 tbsp of butter, stirring often, until lightly cooked.
Make the rice using the broth to substitute for 2 cups of the water required. When the rice is almost done, add the other ingredients, including the remaining tbsp of butter, except for the mutton pieces, and cook five more minutes.
Also known as kabuli palau, this mutton dish is a national dish of Afghanistan. The Afghans eat this with their hands while sitting cross-legged on cushions.
Chicken and chicken broth may be used instead of mutton.
