  • 500 g - Chicken
  • 500 g - Rice
  • 1 - Onion
  • 1 big one or 2 small one - Tomato
  • 1 - whole Broccoli
  • 1/2 tsp - Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tsp - paprika powder
  • 1/4 tsp - Turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp - Ginger Garlic paste
  • 2 stalk - Parsley
  • 3 tbsp - Olive oil
  • Salt - as required
  • How to Make Maqloobeh:

    1. Wash the chicken well and cut it into big size pieces.
    2. Rub the chicken with spices, ginger garlic paste and salt.
    3. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan, add the chicken pieces and fry them on each side, in medium heat.
    4. Then add the sliced onions and stir well.
    5. Add some water to the chicken and cook, until the chicken is cooked.
    6. Wash the broccoli, separate the florets and put them in boiling water for 5 minutes.
    7. Slice the tomatoes and set aside. Wash the rice in cold water and set aside.
    8. Take a large, heavy bottomed vessel. Keep it in slow heat, add olive oil and arrange the slices of tomato, at the bottom of the vessel.
    9. Then arrange the chicken slices.
    10. Then add a layer of rice on top of the chicken.
    11. Then add the broccoli florets.
    12. Then add the remaining rice, salt and enough water, to cover the top of the rice.
    13. Cook on low flame, cover the vessel tightly and do not open the vessel, until the rice looks fluffier.
    14. Better to use a transparent cover, so that you can keep checking the rice, without opening the vessel.
    15. Once the rice looks cooked and all the water is absorbed, switch it off and allow it to rest, for at least 20 minutes.
    16. Then place a large serving plate, on top of the vessel and carefully invert it.
    17. Serve the rice by itself or with salad and stew.
