Finely chop the onion and sauté in oil in a large saucepan. Fry until golden, then add the ground beef and cook, stirring. Add the tomato paste and ground paprika. Add the rice and sauté for a few minutes. Add the salt, parsley, spices, and half a cup of water. Cook over low heat until the mixture absorbs all the water. Wash and separate the vine leaves.
