    Does anyone know how to make the Greek food called Maqloobeh? My friend was talking about it and said she also calls it Upside Down. This is her version and it doesn’t make that much sense to me. If anyone knows the correct way to make it or the exact directions….please let me know.

    Sarah’s version

    upside down (Macluba-arabic)

    cut chicken into pieces and bake in oven
    season with salt pepper sazzon and complete seasoning

    fry potatoes, carrots, eggplant, and califlower

    let 2/3 cups of rice soak in hot water for 30 min.

    fry vermaccelli with butter and pour over raw rice

    season rice with salt, complete seasoning, sazzon, maggi(chicken flavor), all spice, and very little curry

    put cooked chicked and fried veggies on the bottom of pot then rice over it

    fill pot with water until rice is cooked.

    I’m making an Indian-style chickpea curry with the following ingredients:
    Green beans

    I don’t really want to add tofu or any fake meat products. Can you think of any bean or vegetable that I could add that would give it a little more bulk?
