Easy Tomato Maglouba

A showstopper of a dish, the Easy Tomato Maglouba is quick to make. This easy version of the Maglouba is made with the new MAGGI Powder Seasoning & crowned with roundels of juicy tomato.


  • 8-10 medium tomatoes, hollowed, seeded and flesh reserved
  • 600 g minced beef or lamb
  • 1 sachet MAGGI® Powder Seasoning
  • 1 small chopped onion
  • 1 medium green chili chopped (optional)
  • 3 tablespoon chopped coriander
  • 2 cups Egyptian rice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 cups water
  • 5 tablespoon almond slivers

How to Prepare

  1. Using a paring knife, cut a small circle on top of each tomato and remove the stem. With a small spoon, hollow the tomato taking care not to cut the body. Reserve the flesh and chop if too large.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine minced meat, MAGGI® Powder Seasoning, onions, coriander and the flesh from the tomato and mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  3. Carefully spoon the meat mixture inside each tomato and arrange stuffed tomatoes on the bottom of a nonstick rice pot with the opening facing up.
  4. Pour rice over the tomatoes and add cinnamon stick over the rice, pour water over top and bring to a boil.
  5. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat until rice is fully cooked (about 60 mins).
  6. Meanwhile, roast almonds in a greased pan until slightly golden.
  7. To serve, remove pot from heat and remove cover to allow the hot steam to evaporate.
  8. Place a serving platter over the opening of the pot, carefully in one motion flip the pot content on to the platter.
  9. Garnish with roasted almonds.
