Ingredients

About 14 ounces burgel (cracked wheat)

About 2 cups warm water

About 7 ounces minced lamb

About 3/4-ounce salt

About 1-ounce kebbe spices

2 finely chopped onions

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons black pepper

2 teaspoons mixed spices (ground cumin, ground cinnamon, fresh basil, and fresh marjoram, to taste)

1 cup pine nuts

Edible Flowers, for decorations

Directions

  1. Burgel Dough:
  2. Soak the burgel in a bowl with warm water for about 1/2 an hour. Blend the burgel with minced meat, salt, kebbe spices, and the chopped onions. Blend everything together until very smooth and refrigerate while cooking the savory meat for the stuffing.
  3. Savory Minced Meat:
