    Request for Mahloube

    That's the way I say it atleast. I know the dish this person wants, but I'm having trouble locating one on Zaar (I'm sure there are several). I assume it may be on how one interprets the spelling. You may know?

    Would this be a rice and meat dish Evelyn?? If so let me know, and I'll post my recipe. Pronunciation does tend to vary from country to country icon_smile.gif

    Yes, as my Syrian brother-in-law makes it. It also has lots of fried eggplant on top (on the bottom of the pot when he does the layering before adding the rice) and also he fries A LOT of walnuts and pistachios and almonds to be heaped on upon serving. It is truly a culinary masterpiece and, oh, so delicious.

    You are probably having a hard time finding it because it is spelled and pronounced so many different ways..
    We call it friend who talks a village dialect calls it makloobah....This isnt the way I prepare mine but it still looks yummy.

    I will locate this recipe which is an excellent one, and I will post it ASAP icon_biggrin.gif Interesting to hear you have Syrian In-laws Evelyn. Catch the Greek forum icon_lol.gif It IS a small world.
    I also forgot to tell you that I have also a distant Great-aunt, who was married to an Egyptian doctor. She is from one of the remotest islands in Scotland. I discovered this after I had been married for 3 years icon_smile.gif

    the recipe is not for me, ScotsLass, someone requested it in Recipe Request (see link in my first post). I'm sure I could wing making a mahloube pretty adequately, if I had to. Fortunately, my Syrian brother-in-law is an excellent cook and I leave it to him. icon_biggrin.gif

    I posted Recipe # 209628 which is our recipe for this dish. Sorry I am not sufficiently computer-proficient to include the link!!
    You are lucky to have a Syrian relative. According to my family, Greek cuisine and Syrian cuisine are among the best in the world!! My computer is playing up today, and I can't use emoticons , nor can I access your Link to this request Evelyn!!
