This goes great with any curry dish also with poultry dishes. Loaded with fiber. Nice flavor

Just have to make another comment about this dish! I've been eating the sweetened version as a hot cereal in the morning. I add a little fat free Half & Half---absolutely wonderful!
Very tasty side-dish; the plumped-up raisins give a nice little burst of sweetness in each bite. I've never had bulgur prepared like this before (other than Seven-Grain Cereal), and I really liked it. Nice alternative to regular "rice" disehs! I think it would be great, too, without the salt, as a breakfast dish. Thanks, Bergy, for a great recipe!
