Kubba Iraqi stuffed Rice dumplings are crunchy on the outside, with a soft, spiced mixture on the inside. With so many different names like kibbeh or kubbat halab or kubba halab, this dish really plays with all of your senses and is a taste sensation that you will never forget. Kubba is an Iraqi delight named in homage to the Syrian city of Halab. Kubba halab or kubbat halab means kubba from halab, the Arabic name of the Syrian city Aleppo. It is a type of dish usually made of a bulgur or potato dough, or in this case white rice dough, that is stuffed with a ground meat mixture, often hand-shaped like an egg or sometimes flattened like burger patties. These meat filled rice balls are usually served as finger food or appetizers (mezza). The simple and beautiful taste of kubba is in some of these memories that I can still remember from my visit of Iraq.
