Polow in Persian, pilaf to us, according to Wikipedia, is a Middle Eastern, and Central and South Asian dish that was first mentioned in the histories of Alexander the Great in describing Sogdian hospitality. (Sogdian was an eastern Persian province that may have been the birthplace of Alexander's wife Roxana, now Uzbekistan.) Uzbek plov is considered to be one of the oldest polow/plov rice dishes. It was served to Alexander upon his capture of the Sogdian capital of Marakanda (now Samarkand).
