Maqluba
Maqluba is a traditional Middle Eastern dish that has found its way into Indian kitchens. It's a hearty one-pot dish made with rice, vegetables, and meat, flipped upside down when served, hence the name Maqluba, which means 'upside down' in Arabic. Ingredients: Eggplant, Basmati rice, Boneless chicken, Carrot, Cumin powder, Salt, Chicken stock, Coriander powder, Garlic paste, Ghee, Turmeric powder, Onion, Bell pepper

1
Rinse 500 grams of basmati rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Soak the rice in water for 30 minutes, then drain.
2
In a large pan, heat 2 tablespoons of ghee. Add 500 grams of boneless chicken pieces and fry until they turn golden brown. Remove the chicken and set aside.
3
In the same pan, add 2 sliced onions and saut\u00e9 until they turn golden brown. Add 2 teaspoons of garlic paste and saut\u00e9 for a minute.
4
Add 1 chopped carrot, 1 chopped bell pepper, and 1 chopped eggplant to the pan. Saut\u00e9 the vegetables for about 5 minutes.
5
Add the fried chicken back to the pan. Add 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of cumin powder, 1 teaspoon of coriander powder, and salt to taste. Mix well.
6
Add the soaked and drained rice to the pan. Pour in 1 litre of chicken stock. Cover the pan and let it simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the rice is cooked and the liquid is absorbed.
7
Once the rice is cooked, carefully flip the pan upside down onto a large serving plate. The Maqluba should come out in a beautiful layered cake-like form.
