Kibe

1
Place the couscous in a medium pan or bowl and cook according to the packet instructions
2
Meanwhile, place the sunflower oil and half the minced beef in a frying pan over a medium heat and cook for 5–10 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool
3
Preheat a deep fat fryer to 180°C
4
In a large bowl combine the couscous, the uncooked beef, cumin, herbs, salt, lime juice and zest and mix well. Add the cooked beef, egg and raw garlic and stir until thoroughly combined
5
Divide the beef mixture into 30g portions and shape each one into an elongated sausage, slightly pointing the ends – this is the traditional kibe shape. Fry the kibe in batches for 3–4 minutes and leave to drain on kitchen paper
6
Place a mini wooden skewer through the centre of the kibe and serve
