- 3 ½ oz lean ground lamb
- ½ teaspoon Ziyad Brand ground allspice
- ½ teaspoon Ziyad Brand ground cinnamon
- 1/3 cup beef stock
- 2 tablespoon Ziyad Brand pine nuts
- Oil, for deep-frying
- 1 1/3 cups Ziyad Brand Burghul Wheat #1 (Fine Grade)
- 5 oz lean ground lamb
- 1 onion, grated
- 2 tablespoons plain flour
- 1 teaspoon Ziyad Brand ground allspice
- 2 teaspoons Sultan Brand Extra Virgin olive oil
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
Cover the burghul with boiling water and leave for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander, pressing well to remove the water.
Spread on paper towels to absorb any moisture. Process the burghul, lamb, onion, flour, and allspice until a fine paste forms.
Season well, then refrigerate for 1 hour. For filling, heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onion and cook over low heat for 3 minutes, or until soft. Add the ground lamb, allspice and cinnamon, and cook, stirring, over high heat for 3 minutes.
Add the stock and cook, partially covered, over low heat for 6 minutes, or until the mince is soft. Roughly chop the pine nuts and stir in with the mint. Season well with salt and cracked pepper, then transfer to a bowl and allow to cool.
Shape 2 tablespoons of the burghul mixture at a time into a sausage 2 ½ inches long. Dip your hands in cold water, and, with your index finger, make a long hole through the centre of each sausage and gently work your finger around to make a cavity for the filling and seal, molding it into a torpedo shape.
Smooth over any cracks with your fingers.
Place on a foil-lined tray and refrigerate, uncovered for 1 hour. Fill a deep pan one third full of oil and heat until a cube of bread dropped into the oil browns in 15 seconds.
Deep-fry the kibbeh in batches for 2-3 minutes, or until browned.
Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
