Method/ for the kibbeh

-       Rinse the bulgur under water and drain to remove any excess water.

-       Lightly wet your hands with water and divide the dough into egg-sized balls.

-       Press your thumb into the centre of each ball to form cup big enough to fit the large shrimps.

-       Fill each cup with one shrimp leaving tail out. (Save some shrimps to be added to the stew).

-       Shape the kibbe mixture around the shrimp to form an egg shape. Repeat with the remaining dough and shrimps. Set aside.
