Kısır (Bulgur salad)

May 6th, 2011 Comments Off on Kısır (Bulgur salad)

An indispensable and well known side dish in Turkey, which the main ingredient is crushed wheat grain~ that is bulgur. Bulgur is the basic food of Anatolia.

  • 1/2 cup bulgur (finely grounded type bulgur)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup minced parsley
  • 1 cucumber (chopped)
  • 1 fresh green onion (chopped)
  • 1 green pepper (chopped)
  • 2 springs mint (chopped)
  • 2 T minced dill
  • 2 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon (juiced)
  • 1 T pomegranate molasses
  • red pepper paste
  • 1 tomato juice
  • salt
  • red pepper flakes
  • Wash the bulgur thoroughly, then soak it in about twice its amount of water. The water will be hot to speed up the process, especially if there is little time.

    Meanwhile prepare the chopped vegetables. The quantities of the vegetables can be varied depending upon the desired outcome.

    Drain the bulgur and squeeze out as much water as possible before adding it to the vegetables. Add the chopped vegetables. Put red pepper paste and tomato juice.

    Season with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and red pepper flakes according to taste. Serve with lettuce leaves and cucumber slices.

    I sometimes make the original recipe without paste and tomato juice, adapting to my personal taste.

    It seems like this!
