• 500 g of wheat for kibbeh (wheat)
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 cups of wheat flour
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 4 Tablespoons of oil
  • Green smell to taste
  • 1 cup or so of fresh mint
  • Salsinha to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Oil enough for frying


  • Step 1: Soak the wheat for kibbeh in plenty of water for approximately 15 minutes, drain the water removing the darkest part that floats, with the help of a sieve remove as much water as you can

  • Step 2: Finely chop or place the onion, mint, parsley, pepper and green smell in a food processor

  • Step 3: Mix the spices with the wheat in a bowl, add the salt little by little and taste to see how much is enough

  • Step 4: Squeeze the lemon juice over the wheat and add the oil, mix well and with your hands sift and mix the white wheat flour until you get an 'alloy', the dough should not be too hard, but it should be possible to shape the savory

  • Step 5: Place on a tray to freeze or deep-fry


  • 1: Fry in a pan with very hot oil

  • 2: To freeze, arrange the kibbeh next to each other on a tray, place it in the freezer for at least 2 hours and only then place it in a stacked pot or bag, this ensures that they do not stick together and fall apart later when frying

  • 3: It is possible to freeze for up to 3 months

  • 4: You can use red onion in this recipe to enhance the kibbeh flavor

  • 5: The pepper is optional and if you are going to serve it at a party it is safer not to put it on and serve it with a pepper sauce for anyone who wants it
