DIRECTIONS

  • Place turkey, onion and salt in a pot. Lower heat and cook until turkey is done (about 1 hour). If juices evaporate before turkey is done, add 1/4 cup water. When turkey is cooked, remove from the pot and mash with a potato masher.
  • Add water to the bulgur to barely cover it (1 litr is enough), then bring to a boil.
  • Stir occasionally, to prevent the formation of a crust on the bottom of the pan.
  • In a food processor, mash bulgur into a soft paste and set aside.
  • Return turkey and bulgur to the pot, mix well and cook over low heat for 2 hours. Then add butter, sugar and sesame.
  • Serve it in a bowl, sprinkled with cinnamon.
