This is a new recipe which my mother in law has cooked today which I wanted to share with you as its really lovely. The measurements are basically for a family of four but the amounts are easy to estimate for more or less.
1. Firstly soak 2 cups of Bulgur wheat in water for about half an hour.
2. Then after sieving it add some mince, finely chopped onion, white pepper, mixed spices , ground cardamom and salt and put into a grinder and make into more of a pate style mixture. Then add a little warm water and mix a little more.
3. Meanwhile put your remaining mince in a bowl with finely chopped onion, pomegranate molasses, a pinch of salt and some chopped walnuts and mix well.
4. Now is the slightly fiddly part. You get a handful of the pate and flatten it in the palm of your hand and put a tablespoon of the meaty mixture in the middle and close the pate around it. Shape it so that the pate is closed around the meat and then flatten it slightly using your palms so that it is circle shaped . Pre heat your oven to high and pour a little corn oil into an oven dish before adding the pate parcels. Place two almond slices on each pate and bake for half an hour before serving.
These are really delicious ! I hope you enjoy making them too :)
