Maqluba is a famous Arabic dish, specially a Palestinian dish, it's often pronounced as Maalouba or Magouba, it's an Arabic name which means (upside-down) because it's served upside-down, the main ingredients in this dish are rice, cooked meat and fried eggplant, and it could be made with any kind of meat like chicken, lamb, or beef, and also any kind of fried vegetable with or without eggplant, like potatoes, cauliflower, or carrots.

500 جم لحم بقري مقطع مكعبات
1 بصلة مقطعة قطع صغيرة
2 أو 3 حبة باذنجان
1 بصلة مقطعة شرائح (ليست رفيعة)
2 حبة طماطم مقطعة شرائح
2 كوب أرز مصري أو أرز قصير الحبة، مغسول ومصفَّى
2 كوب ماء
ملح وفلفل حسب الرغبة
4 ملاعق طعام زيت زيتون

1- نسخن الفرن على درجة حرارة 200 مئوية، نبدأ في طهي اللحم، نضعها في إناء على نار متوسطة مع البصل المقطع قطع صغيرة ونقلب لمدة 5 دقائق، ثم نغطه بالماء ونتركه على النار حوالي ساعة أو إلى أن ينضج، ونتابعها من وقت لآخر إذا احتاجت إلى الماء، وبعد أن تنضج نضيف الملح حسب الرغبة.

2- نجهز الباذنجان، أنا لم أقم بقليه حتى لا يشرب الكثير من الزيت، فأنا أفضل وضعه في الفرن، حيث وضعته في صينية مدهونة زيت زيتون، وقمت برشه بالملح وزيت الزيتون.

3- ندخل الباذنجان في فرن مسخن على درجة حرارة 200 مئوية لمدة من 20 إلى 30 دقيقة.

4- نبدأ في تجهيز المقلوبة، نحضر إناء ونضع فيه شرائح البصل.

5- نضع شرائح الطماطم فوق البصل.

6- نرص الباذنجان بهذا الشكل فوق الطماطم.

7- نضع نصف كمية الأرز فوق الباذنجان.

8- نضيف نصف مقدار اللحم فوق الأرز.

9- نضيف طبقة أخرى من باقي مقادر الأرز.

10- نضع طبقة أخيرة من اللحم.

11- نجهز كوبين الماء بإضافة الملح إليهما ونقلب ثم نضيف الماء إلى الإناء ونرش بعض الفلفل الأسود.

12- نترك الإناء على نار عالية إلى أن يغلي ثم نضعه على نار هادئة جدا لمدة 25 دقيقة لينضج، ثم نقلب الإناء للتقديم، وبالهناء والشفاء :)

  1. humm sounds great and very nicely set. well done

  2. Very nice. I always enjoy cooking and eating layered dishes. This one is pretty. Seems like it could serve more than 3!

  3. Sadaf: Thanks Sadaf , you have to try it you will really like it :)

    Sara: It could serve four but you will not be full :)

  4. It actually looks a bit like a moussaka in a different format, but without the white sauce layer. Is that about right?

  5. May be the same main ingredients (eggplant and meat), but here we don't use ground meat and Maqluba contains rice too, and like you said no white sauce layer, also it's not baked. I think they are different and they don't have the same taste at all.

  6. very nice. looks like an arabic version of layered biryani

  7. Shree: Thanks :)

  30. We all love maqluba!!!!!!!! Yours looks so perfecty shaped, mine usually crumbles down after I invert it on a plate :( Seeing familiar food on the net always make me feel nostalgic, thank you for sharing :)

  31. Maybe you just turn it upside down once it's cooked, you have to let it rest for minutes before doing so to not crumble or fall apart. You are welcome I'm happy you like it :)

  32. Lovely presentation. This reminds me of a similar dish done with cooked pasta. It is cut into slices and served like a torte. Delicious ingredients to accompany the rice.
