2 cups fine bulgur
2 cups boiled and mashed potato
2 Tbsp pepper paste
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
½ cup water
½ cup flour –Stuffing—
1 pound ground beef(medium fat)
1 onion( chopped)
½ bunch (parsley )
½ cup walnut
1tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
*2 cups olive oil to fry
In a large pan or skillet, brown the onions with the beef continuously mixing over medium-high heat for about 15-20 minutes.
When browned and crumbly, remove from heat and add parsley, walnuts, and spices. Mix well and cover.
Soak the bulgur in warm water in a large bowl and cover. Let it sit for 10-15 min. Add all the shell mixture ingredients including the potatoes and start kneading. Have a small bowl of water handy, because you will need to dip your hands in the water while kneading. Keep kneading for 15-20 minutes (longer if necessary) until all the ingredients are mixed well and the shell mixture is soft enough to give a shape.
Take an egg size piece from the bulgur mixture, with wet hands flatten the piece so that it semi covers your palm. Fill about 2 teaspoons of meat filling in the center.
With wet hands close together the sides and encase the filling by molding the shell. Repeat until all the bulgur mixture is gone. STEP 4
Heat the oil in a large pan. When the oil is ready, add the stuffed shells and fry both sides until they are golden brown
