Moroccan Cigars – Meat filled crispy wrappers

A group of Youtubers got together and decided to put together a stellar roundup of dad friendly recipes for Father's Day. Last year we put on a spectacular competition for Father's day and pitted Father against Father in a friendly cooking competition. Each Father teamed up with their kid and made something edible for the judges using pre selected ingredients. You can watch that video here

This year I decided to make something I know my father and my children's father would love – a spiced ground meat filling inside a crispy wrapper, The Moroccan cigar. This is fairly simple to make and looks extra authentic when I use a icing bag and tip to pipe the filling to give it a cylindrical shape. These are best fried but you could brush it with oil and bake it.


2 lbs ground meat
Salt & pepper to taste
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp paprika powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp pomegranate molasses
1/4 cup chopped Parsley
3 tbsps chopped mint
3 – 4 Spring onions
3 cloves garlic crushed
1 egg

20 – 25, 8 x 8 Spring Roll wrappers
1 extra beaten egg


Mix all the ingredients together and add to a processor and process till a smoother paste

Add to a piping bag

Separate the Spring roll sheets and brush with egg wash

Pipe the filling in a straight line roll over the wrapper and fold them inwards and roll like a cigar

Add more egg at the end and seal

Fry in hot oil
