Potato Kibbeh Recipe
Wash and remove any eyes of potatoes. Add them to a pot filled with 2 cups of water and bring it to a boil. Simmer them to fork tender.
Score the boiled potatoes, and you can slip the peel off with no effort. Add them to a large mixing bowl and mash them with a fork, masher, or potato ricer.
Add olive oil, salt, black pepper, curry, and paprika to the mashed potatoes and mix them well to form a uniform texture. You can also add bread crumbs and season it with chili flakes, cumin powder, or cinnamon powder.
To prepare the kibbeh filling, peel and chop the onion finely and sauté it with a little oil in a suitable pan until the onion becomes translucent.
Add the minced meat to the pan along with some salt, turmeric, and black pepper and sauté them well until the meat changes color.
Wash and rinse the parsley and chop it finely. Add the chopped parsley to the pan and sauté it with the ingredients for a few minutes until they get mixed. Then take the pan off the heat and set it aside.
Wet your hands, take the size of a small tangerine from the mashed potatoes, and push your finger into the center of the ball to form a hollow dome. Then put a spoonful of the mixture of minced meat in the spot and roll it in your hand to form an oblong shape. Before frying, you can also put cheese in the kibbeh and dip the potatoes in bread crumbs.
Put a deep pan on the heat and fill it with enough frying to submerge the kibbeh. Let the oil reach 180 Celsius or 350 Fahrenheit and then carefully place the Kibbeh in the oil and fry them.
Slightly agitate them during frying. Once it gets golden brown, remove them from the pan and put them on a rack to drain the excess oil. In the end, put the potato kibbeh in a dish and serve it with the ketchup or your desired sauce. Enjoy your meal!
