Maqluba

Maqluba

Maqluba is the national dish of Palestine. This layered one-pot dish has many versions, but the basic principle is to turn it upside down before serving, which is what the word maqluba means. The ingredients include rice, vegetables (often carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, cauliflower, onions), herbs and spices, and meat such as chicken or lamb, although the dish can be made without any meat. The ingredients are cooked and layered, then boiled until there's no liquid left. Before serving, maqluba is flipped upside down, and it's then often garnished with pine nuts or chopped parsley on top. It's recommended to serve the dish with a cucumber and tomato salad, olives, and yogurt on the side.
