For the Kibbeh:
 1lbs (1/2 kg) potatoes, boiled and peeled
 1 lbs(1/2 kg) bulgur, washed and drained
 salt, to taste
 1/2 tsp ground cumin
 1 tsp dried coriander
 4 cups vegetable oil for frying
For the Filling:
 3 onions, sliced
 2 tbsp sumac
 Pinch of salt
 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

For the Filling:
1

Heat olive oil in a saucepan, add onions and salt, and stir until the onions are wilted.

2

Add sumac and stir for two minutes.

For the Kibbeh:
3

In a bowl mix bulgur with salt, dry coriander and ground cumin, then mince the mixture with an electric meat mincer.

4

Also, mince the potatoes with the electric meat mincer, then knead the potatoes with the bulgur until they mix well.

5

Dampen your hands with water. Take about 1 tbsp of kibbeh dough and shape into egg-sized ball. Use your index finger to poke a hole in the middle of the ball, and gradually hallow the ball out to make a larger hole for the filling.

6

Add about 1 tsp of the filling (or more if you have room!) and then seal the dough on top and, using both hands, shape it into a football shape. Repeat the process until the dough is finished.

7

In a large saucepan, heat vegetable oil over medium heat (enough oil should be heated to cover the kibbeh).

8

Carefully add the kibbeh to the oil in batches being carefully not to crowd them, until the kibbeh shells are golden brown and crunchy. Drain on paper towels and serve.
