Kubba Mosul is one of Iraq’s most famous and authentic dishes. It is a meat pie consisting of two layers of bulgur and Jereesh (cracked wheat) dough mixed with seasoned beef. The stuffing is made with ground beef, onions and some seasoning. The dough and stuffing are flattened into round disc shapes. This particular dish is named after the North of Iraq, where my family is from, Mosul.
