Re: Bulgar wheat

I think this will be Kısır.

It varies in different regions, due to the differing courseness of the bulgar, ingredients such as biber, maydenoz and sometimes salça, and of course the different shapes, fingers or small balls.

I love 'em!

Re: Bulgar wheat

mmm - you're making me hungry, don't forget the biber salcasi for a bit of heat.

Can I also mention Mercimek Kofte, usually served with lettuce and a few hot pickled peppers. Wonderful lunch food!!

Google for either Kisir or mercimek kofte, easy to make.

Re: Bulgar wheat

Do you mean ji ( or ci? ) kebab? You use raw beef mince, fine bulgar, huge amounts of red pepper and spices and work it all together for about an hour, adding ice as the mixture gets too hot. The action of kneading and the heat it generates cooks the meat and the bulgar - sounds crazy but it's true! My Turkish (ex) husband was brilliant at it - we were often invited to peoples houses so he would make it for them. It's a bit too chilli flavoured for me, but most Turks I know, including my ex, love it!

Re: Bulgar wheat

Yildez - I love it :-) It's like celebration food or happy food in the village. Doesnt matter what you've had for dinner, one of the Amca's might just ring up at 9pm ish and say hey my house for Çig Kofte. Its the one dish the men make, they take great pride in it and you do need strong hands to make it but, I have to say my mother in law makes it better than them!

Re: Bulgar wheat

Thanks for your replies. I made it tonight...the version without the meat...and my husband said it was very good. I guessed what to put in it but it seemed to taste ok.

But i do like the meat one so i will try it next time

Thanks

Lynda

Thanks Kym - I knew I'd spelt it incorrectly but for the life of me couldn't think how it should be!!! I've got cold weather hibernation brain!!!!
