Pauli reinvented rice (5)


I believe the answer is:


'rice' is the definition.
(pilau is a type of rice)

'pauli reinvented' is the wordplay.
'reinvented' indicates an anagram.
'pauli' with letters rearranged gives 'PILAU'.

(Other definitions for pilau that I've seen before include "Indian rice recipe" , "Spiced rice dish" , "Eastern dish" , "Rice cooked in well-seasoned broth" , "Spicy rice dish from the East" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
