Icli Kofte(stuffed mince balls) Recipe

This food was really hard to cook, i always loved it, i cant say it is cooked at my home so often but i understood why; it is realllyyyyy difficult to make it and takes much time, but i always love to eat it, i have guessed it is too hard but not this much expected:))
when i eat it ,i will eat slower anymore as i understood how hard it was cooked:)
i should honestly say when i was filling the bulghur, my mum helped me as i wasnt so successful.
Içli köfte is a food oftenly cooked in easten part of Turkey, i preffered to boil it to make it light but also you may fry it and i like it more ,but too fatty..
By the way i should add the pictures in recipes ;my mum’s hands:)

1 cup fine bulgur
1 medium onion
1 tablespoon chili paste
1 teaspoon cumin
1 cup semolina
One full teaspoon of salt

For Inside;
250 gr ground beef
1 sp butter
3 onions
1/2 gl walnuts
black pepper

Soak bulgur with 1 cup boiled water,let stand half an hour,add semolina, chopped onion,chili paste,salt,cumin,and knead.
cook 2-3min minced meat with butter, then add the chopped onion cook 6-7 minutes. Add spices and finely chopped walnuts. cook for some min and let it cool.
The most difficult part start now, get some bulghur as big as a walnut, and with one finger, open it from middle, and make it bigger with turning in your hand, it should be like a bell pepper.
It should be thin enough, when it is big and thin enough fill it with mince we prepared.
after you prepared close the mouth of it.
