How to make it
- To make the kibbeh: Place burghul in bowl, cover with cold water and stand for 15 mins. Drain burghul and squeeze in hands to soften. Place the ground beef in food processor and mince to fine paste. Add the remainder of the ingredients (adding water a little at a time) to the blender and mix. Remove and keep aside.
- To prepare the filling: Heat oil in pan, add onions and cook till soft. Add nuts, cook until lightly browned. Add ground beef and spices, cook, stirring until lamb is browned.
- Shape 1/4 cups of kibbeh into balls using damp hands See Photo. Hollow out the centres using thumb, and place a rounded teaspoon (or more) of filling inside See Photo. Shape kibbeh into ovals See Photo. Now deep-fry the kibbeh in very hot oil (in batches) until browned all over and cooked through. Drain on absorbent paper. Serve with mezze.
