Kubbe Basal
Kubbe Basal is one of the easiest and tastiest of the Iraqi kubbes. It can be served in soup, or as pictured here, pan fried. This recipe serves 3-4 people.

I'll tell you what you can do :

You can enjoy kubbe basal in its cardamom-tomato soup. Or, for a change, you can serve the kubbe pan fried. To do so, first follow the recipe for Kubbe Basal. As the kubbe shell finishes hardening the water (about 20 minutes), remove each gently onto a clean dish and allow to cool and dry.

Next, in a shallow frying pan heat a few teaspoons of oil sauté. Place the kubbe flat onto the heated oil and allow to brown on each side, flipping just once.

Now serve it with iraqi pink rice. It's "sooo good"!


It doesn't take a lot of oil to fry a kubbe. Simply sauté in a little bit of olive oil and remove onto paper towels to drain the excess grease. Cooking healthy is sooo good!

Best of luck,
