Maqluba (Arabic: مقلوبة‎; Turkish: maklube; Persian: مقلوبه‎; ) is a traditional dish of the Arab Levant, Persia, and Iraq.[1] The dish includes meat, rice, and fried vegetables placed in a pot, which is then flipped upside down when served, hence the name maqluba, which translates literally as "upside-down".

The dish can include a variety of vegetables, such as fried tomatoes, potatoes, cauliflower, eggplant, and chicken or lamb.[2] When the casserole is inverted, the top is bright red from the tomatoes that now form the top layer and cover the golden eggplant.

Maqluba is usually served with either yogurt or a simple Arab salad (salata Arabia) of diced tomato, cucumber, parsley, and lemon juice, often mixed with a tahina sauce.

In Turkey, this dish is known as maklube and is often consumed in the Gülen movement's student houses.[3] Although the ingredients become slightly different being modified to fit into Turkish cuisine, the preparation and look of the dish is the same.
