~Kibbeh - Potatoes & Rice~

Posted by M.S. at 3:39 AM 2 comments Links to this post


2 cups rice or 400 g, washed
3 cups water or 750 ml
2 cubes MAGGI® Seasoning 
2 medium potatoes or 500 g, boiled and peeled

for the stuffing:

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 medium onions or 250 g, chopped
½ kg minced lamb
1 tablespoon curry powder
2 cubes MAGGI® Mutton Bouillon, crumbled
3 tablespoons pine seeds, toasted
2 tablespoons raisins
¼ cup fresh dill or 20 g, finely chopped
2 cups vegetable oil, for deep frying


Place rice, water and MAGGI® Seasoning for White Rice cubes in a pot. Stir constantly to boil then cover and cook over a low heat until rice is cooked. Remove and set aside to cool slightly.

Mash the potato and the rice until puree then cover and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium pot, add onion and cook until tender. Add minced lamb (you can used any of your fillings) and cook until golden brown. Add curry powder, MAGGI® Mutton Bouillon cubes, pine seeds and raisins and stir until well combined. Remove pot from heat, mix in dill, corriander leaves and leave to cool.

With wet hands, take medium sized pieces of the potato and rice mixture, form each portion into a ball shape, making a space in the center by pushing your finger through from one end.

Stuff with some meat mixture like patties, close firmly to form a ball then flatten it slightly into small patties.

Fry kibbeh by batches in deep hot oil until golden brown.
Serve hot with green salad and yogurt

Always Dream

I want to curl up here and enjoy my leisure time with a book and cup of hot chocolate /coffee late and relax whilst the Sunshine warms me and the breeze plays through my hair.
