This is a very healthy alternative to plain starchy old rice very good for diabetics and people watching their heart. My parents-in-law have this daily with curries and dals as they would have ordinary rice before my f-i-l's bypass surgery. This is good more of a tip than a recipe, actually.
- Wash the burgul lightly (one rinse) and soak the burgul in the water for an hour.
- Put it on the stove in a non-stick pan till it comes to a boil.
- Stir and cover simmered till all the water disappears and holes appear on the top of the burghul and it is cooked.
- After the first time you may have to adjust the water depending on the quality of burgul you buy.
- You may need to add some boiling water if you find the burgul is not done fully.
- After the first time the measurements will be clear.
- 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.
- I make pulaos too out of burgul when my in-laws come visiting.
