In a bowl place the bulgur, cover with water and let it settle until the water becomes cloudy.

Drain out the water and repeat the process 2 times more. after the last rinse, cover with water and let set for 15 minutes.

Drain the bulgur and squeeze out all the excess of water.

Mix the bulgur with the meat to create a kind of dough.

Add all the seasonings and the onion.

Work the mix like a dough.

Place a small bowl of cold water next to you.

Make from the dough a small ball.

Start working it in round motions to create a pocket with the help of your thumb.

Make it large enough to fit the ground lamb that you prepared previously for the filling.

Fill in the meat, push down a little with your fingers so you can close the pocket.
