Maklouba '' Stories around the Levantine table "


Maqluba or Maqlooba (In Arabic: مقلوبة) is a traditional Iraqi, Lebanese, Palestinian, Jordanian and Syrian dish served throughout the Levant. It consists of meat, rice, and fried vegetables placed in a pot which is flipped upside down when served, hence the name maqluba, which translates literally as "upside-down."

Maqluba can include a variety of vegetables, such as fried tomatoes, potatoes, cauliflower, and eggplant, accompanied by either chicken or lamb.
The most common are cauliflower and eggplant. All the ingredients are carefully placed in the pot in layers, so that when the pot is inverted for serving, the dish looks like a layer cake.
Maqluba is typically garnished with pine nuts and chopped fresh parsley.
It sometimes served with salad and fresh yogurt, and is often prepared for feasts and large gatherings.
