This is a great all in one meal. It smells wonderful while it's cooking. Put it on a fancy platter and it looks beautiful. It is really simple to make.
made exactly as described. Smelled nice. Was EXTREMELY mild - could use a lot more spices. I was disappointed. My kids ate it the first night, but wouldn't finish the leftovers. Had to throw the rest away - and this makes a LOT. Won't be making again.
Thanks so much for submitting this recipe. I am a newly converted American muslim, and I have tasted and seen this dish prepared by other muslims. Its nice to have my own recipe now. Thank you!
My Jordanian husband makes this all the time. I don't care for the chicken with bones so he uses boneless skinless chicken breast and just reduces the boiling time. He also uses a pinch of saffron while soaking the rice... it gives it a nice flavor.
This recipe tasted better than any maalooba dish i have ever tasted. It was so authentic and tasted better than my mothers. Thank you imankay for this recipe keeper!!
Very good maqlooba recipe, love the addition of tomatoes. I halved the recipe and worked out great.
This recipe is for a difficult middle eastern dish that i have had for years with friends and its perfect. I recently made it for my friends and they absolutely loved it, i gave this recipe out to many people. And as for the measurements of allspice its perfect it tastes just like how arabic food should taste, not bland!! Thanks imankay, look forward for more recipes from you.
Makloubeh is a traditional Middle Eastern dish that I first had in Jordan. I remember my mother making it and am now making it for my children. A few steps but fairly easy and so yummy. Plus the house smells great while it's cooking!
