How to Prepare

  1. Wash burghul and drain then cover and set it aside for 1 hour.
  2. Combine in a mixing bowl the prepared burghul, minced beef, onion, mint, salt and spices. Mince the ingredients 3 times using the meat electric mincer (add some cold water to have soft dough if needed). Cover and set in the fridge.
  3. Heat oil in a pan, add onion and cook until tender. Add the minced lamb and stir until cooked and brown in color. Add the crumbled MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon cubes, Arabic seven spices, pine seeds, dried mint and pomegranate molasses and stir to combine well.
  4. With wet hands, take medium sized pieces of the kibbeh dough mixture, form each portion into an oval shape, making a space in the center by pushing your finger through from one end.
  5. Stuff with some cooked lamb mixture, close by pressing firmly.
  6. Fry the kibbeh in hot deep oil until golden brown.
  7. Serve hot with green salad and fresh yogurt
