Eid Dinner


A simple celebration with the Family

Since Eid is not a holiday here in Europe, any celebration (if any) would have to wait until Elsa is home from school and MrD's back from work.







I decided to make Maqluba, a Palestinian dish literally translated as upside-down in arabic.
The family just adore this dish.
What's great about Maqluba is its a one-pot meal of rice, vegetable and meat.
I'm all for an easy life!


For my version of Maqluba,
I made it with sweet cherry tomatoes, fried cauliflowers and aubergines
and boneless chicken thighs




But, first...
the all-important Family photograph
if you don't know me by now, I like to subject the Family through this arduous little task before they can enjoy the food prepared.
It's fun to see them squirm!!

      The family sangat suka Maqluba. Memang renyah sikit nak buat tapi worth the effort!
