Bulgur Wheat

Information about Bulgur Wheat



Go to:-  Turkey Speciality Dish  |  Turkey Main Page Cooking by Country Main Page




Bulgur wheat is a golden beige colour with an irregular cracked shape. Often confused with "cracked" wheat, bulgur differs in that it is pre-cooked during processing, making it quicker to cook at home. It can be used in much the same way as couscous or rice as is a staple ingredient in Turkish cooking.



It is produced by parboiling wheat grains after which most of the bran is removed.  It goes through  a hot water wash which swells the grains which are then steamed for about 1 hours.   It is then dried and the wheat is then cracked on steel rollers. Finally, the grains are graded into fine, medium and coarse.


You will find  recipes using Bulgur on both the  Turkey Cooking by Country main page and in other sections of this web site. Use the search facility to find them all.


Happy cooking!
