Makdous (Arabic: المكدوس or sometimes المقدوس) is a dish of oil-cured eggplants. Part of Levantine cuisine (Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Israel, Syria, Iraq), they are tiny, tangy eggplants stuffed with walnuts, red pepper, garlic, olive oil and salt. Sometimes chilli powder is added.
Makdous is usually prepared by Syrian households around fall to supply for winter, and is usually eaten during breakfast, supper or as a snack.
