Monk's Kibbeh(Kibbet el Raaheb)

Monk’s recipe is one of the most traditional recipes in Lebanon , specially in the countrysides. In these countrysides, Bulgar is a very essential ingredient in every house’s hoard as it is cooked frequently in the cold days of winter while the family gathers around the Gasoline heater,

This was the recipe of the month in Arabic flavor ,and that is my entry :) It tasted really amazing! my whole family loved it . Would like to thank the beautiful lady Norma AL ali (host of the month) for sharing her authentic dish with us :)
