Fine Bourgal, otherwise known as bulgur and burghal is wheat that has been steamed or parboiled, dried and ground. It therefore requires little preparation. The tender grain has a chewy texture and a light, nutty flavour.
Packed with protein, bourgal is a rich in vitamin b, manganese, phosphorous and selenium.
Known for its use in tabbouleh, bourgal is commonly served as a side with Mediterranean dishes. It can also be added as a protein in salads.
For a traditional Turkish dish, boil three cups of water in a saucepan, add one cup of bourgal, a knob of butter and salt, cover and cook until water absorbs.
