Method

  1. Use the same ingredients as for the kibbeh bil sanieh recipe, replacing the 185 ml melted samneh, ghee or olive oil with sufficient oil for deep-frying.
  2. Take lumps of kibbeh the size of small eggs and shape into balls.
  3. Dip your hands in cold water, roll a ball of kibbeh in your palms until smooth, then make a hole in the ball with your forefinger. Work your finger round in the hole until you have a shell of even thickness. Fill the hole with the filling mixture and close the opening. Moisten with cold water to seal well. If any breaks appear in the shell, close them with wet fingers.
  4. Complete the shape to resemble either a torpedo, pointed at each end, or a spinning top, rounded at one end and pointed at the other. Place the finished kibbeh shells on a tray.
  5. Heat the oil in a frying pan and deep-fry a few at a time until they become a deep brown colour, without being burnt, turning them to brown evenly. Lift out with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a low oven until the remainder are cooked.
  6. Alternatively, place the shaped kibbeh side by side in a large greased baking dish, brush well with the melted samneh or oil, and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 20–25 minutes.
  7. Serve hot or cold with salads, yoghurt and khoubiz or other flat bread.

Note

  • Torpedo-shaped kibbeyet are usually fried in oil. The ones shaped like spinning tops can be cooked over a glowing charcoal fire or baked in the oven.
