For the filling

  • 1 lb. ground beef or lamb
  • 1 large yellow onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

For the shell

  • 1 1/2 lbs. ground lamb
  • 3/4 cup fine bulgur (#1)
  • 1 table spoon red pepper paste
  • salt to taste

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the filling by browning the ground meat until browned. Add the onions and cook together for 1/2 hour. Add chopped onions for an additional 10 minutes. Add the paprika and salt stir.
Step 2: When preparing (geyma) shell, get a big bowl add bulgur, salt ( to your taste), red pepper paste and paprika.|
Step 3: First get a bowl, add 2 cups bulgur, 1/2 table spoon salt, 1 large table spoon red pepper paste, 1 table spoon paprika. Mix it with hands. I usually mix it with gloves on. When you notice the ingredients are blended add chi-kyofta (grounded meat) and continue to mix for another              10 minutes or so until you notice the mixture well blended.
Step4: Take a little bit of the mixture make a hollow hole inside and fill the center with the filling, cooked ground meat. Cover up with the shell until you have a ball. Should the shel crack tap it with a moist hand and try to blend the cracks. Continue repeating this process until all the meatballs are made.
Step 5: Enjoy!

Tip: As you prepare the chi-kufta shell, always dab your hand in the water before creating the shell and covering it with the mixture to add moisture and create the perfect round kufta.
