Baghdadi Fish Makluba– Upside-Down Rice and Fish Meal
I called this dish as Baghdadi Fish Maqluba, I have watched my mom cook this dish it was heavenly delicious I have not seen or heard anyone cook Fish Maqluba except my mother. This is a unique dish in taste, flavor, and technique. My Mom and Dad loved Fish so much, they would literally eat it during breakfast, lunch, and dinner with no problem. The main ingredients in this dish are the fish and rice. The Fish Maqluba is served with fish, rice, potatoes, eggplant, and red cabbage. The ingredients are organized neatly inside the pot after the Maqluba is fully cooked, the pot will be flipped upside down to be served. When the pot is flipped upside down it forms as a perfect circle as a cake like and all the ingredients stay in perfect order. I have taken this original recipe and upgraded by adding more spices, and herbs to intensify in taste and flavor. Baghdadi Fish Makluba have all the goodness in one pot, and it is a wonderful dish to make for a large gathering, you can add other side dishes like salad, and yogurt sauce. Baghdadi Fish Makluba has a huge aroma, as soon you flipped the pot the aroma of the food comes out the smell of the basmati rice is so heavenly, the fish is so tender and melt in your mouth, also the layers of vegetables beautifully organized on top of each other and they all individual spiced and salted perfectly. Also, I have included many pictures for easy understanding and follow on how to make this recipe. I hope you would enjoy this recipe as much as my family enjoys it.
