KIbbeh Kras Mikliyeh - Fried Kibbee Balls

the ingredients of the Kibbee are a mix of bulghul or cracked wheat and meat, and the stuffing ground meat and spices, the kibbee then shaped into balls and fried.
See the following pictures for instruction.

cook the stuffing before adding the pinenuts which can be toasted in another frying pan and then add it to the mix.

Dip your finger in water and start making an eggshell, fill it with the stuffing .

The egg shell should be the same thickness and the thinner the better, you can achieve that by practice. if the kibbee breaks when working with it, just dip your finger with water and gather it together.

then dip your finger again in water and start closing the egg
