Peel the potatoes and onion, slice them round like ring, fry them in 2 cups oil.
Put 4 tbsp butter in a pan, having two handles (because after cook maklube you will turn it up side down so you will need handles to hold and turn it easily).
Place fried ring onion and potatoes as one layer at the bottom of cooking pan. Add already washed and drained 2 cup of rice, place cooked half of beef stew ,as a layer, on top of rice. Then repeat the process first fried potatoes, then uncooked last cup of rice, finally beef stews on top of rice.

Turn the pan on a round tray, decorate around maklube with salad and yogurt.
