Burgul / Bulgur Wheat

Servings: 2
150 bulgur wheat (cracked wheat)
2 cups water  (approx)
Prep Time: 1 hr

Total Time: 1 1/2 hrs

  1. 1 Wash the burgul lightly (one rinse) and soak the burgul in the water for an hour.
  2. 2 Put it on the stove in a non-stick pan till it comes to a boil.
  3. 3 Stir and cover simmered till all the water disappears and holes appear on the top of the burghul and it is cooked.
  4. 4 After the first time you may have to adjust the water depending on the quality of burgul you buy.
  5. 5 You may need to add some boiling water if you find the burgul is not done fully.
  6. 6 After the first time the measurements will be clear.
  7. 7 Note:You can fry an onion or even bacon in a little oil, then add the burgul and saute lightly and then add the water for richer variations for those who are not on a no oil/ fat diet.
  8. 8 I make pulaos too out of burgul when my in-laws come visiting.
