it's sweet and sour beets soup with kooba 'dumlings'
the dumplings are made of a fine grounded semolina and filled with meat (i've used grounded chicken thighs)


i wish there was an english recipe


although it's hard to find non instant semolina of this kind in north america


there are many versions of kooba (kubba/kibbe)


i ate it since being a child

I've heard of kibbeh before, so I looked it up. I found several recipes online for kibbeh, which might be similar to what you're talking about.


It's a shell made of ground buckwheat with a filling of ground meat, onions, spices. It's shaped like a golf ball or mini-torpedo, like a kebab. I saw a few variations. Does that sound similar to your kibe?


Ground buckwheat is pretty easy to find around here these days, with so many people going gluten-free.

The kibbeh that I get is made with bulgur. I don't think the type of grain is all that important. This is the one I get:

different ones have different dough


some of them are using bulgar, others with a special semolina (and often a mix).


in iraq they didn't used semolina. in iraq they grounded cooked rice and used that. sometimes the rice was grounded with chicken bones or something and then filled.


i never heard about using buckwheat

My Yiddish is also better than my Hebrew. Is that so unusual?
