İçli Köfte (Stuffed Bulgur with Meat)

This is another traditional Turkish food which is not so easy to make. You need really talented hands to make these balls.

This is another traditional Turkish food which is not so easy to make. You need really talented hands to make these balls. It is mostly served in the southern part of Turkey, but you can find some variations of these dishes in Arab countries called Kıbbah. But while it is not easy to make, it definetly worth it to try.

If it’s your first time trying, you can cook one potato and put it into bulgur so that the bulgur won’t get messed up and you will not need to do too much kneading.


Ingredients
200 gr fine bulgur
1 egg
1/2 tablespoon red pepper paste
1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon cumin
100 gr semolina
1/2 table spoon of salt
1/2 table spoon of red pepper


For inside:
250 gr ground beef
1 sp butter
2 onions, chopped
1/2 gl walnuts, chopped
black pepper
salt
cumin


Soak bulgur with one cup of boiled water and let it stand for half an hour. Then add semolina, egg, tomato and red pepper paste, salt, cumin, red peppers, kneading them all very well. You will have a sticky, soft dough.

Place butter in a pan, add onions, add ground beef and sautee for 7-8 minutes.
Add spices and finely chopped walnuts. Cook for a few minutes more and let cool.

The most difficult part starts now; get some bulgur that is the same size as a walnut, and with one finger, start pressing inside, make a large cavity. When it is big and thin, wet your hand and fill it with the meat already prepared.


After you have made the filling, close the bulgur into a ball or egg shape.



Heat oil in a frying pan and then lightly fry the balls until they become golden.

Serve warm.

Bon appétit!
