How to make Bulgar Kebabs? Vegan Recipes

In this recipe, we make these super yum Kabobs with Burgol, boiled potatoes, various spices and greens (mainly spinach and baby Kale chopped)These are easy to prepare, great for potlucks and store well too.
Burgol or Bulgur is a grain from the ancient Middle East; from there it spread quickly around the world. Bulgur is wheat berries that are partially hulled, steamed, then cracked and dried. Often confused with cracked wheat, both look the same, however, Bulghur is steamed (precooked) unlike cracked wheat. Bulghur is gritty and flaky and used primarily in Tabbuleh or Tabouli (a typical Lebanese salad). Bulgur is also commonly used as a meat substitute.

Ingredients/ Method

1 cup Burgol/ Bulgur wheat
4-5 boiled/mashed potatoes
2 cups chopped greens – Spinach/Kale
2-3 tbsp oil for pan frying. You can deep fry these as well.
Spices I used- salt, garam masala, seasoning pepper, red chilli powder (or paprika), garlic salt and curry powder. Adjust quantities as per your liking.

Mix everything well and then form small patties. Pan- fry both sides on a skillet until golden brown. Outside will be crispy and inside soft but cooked. Enjoy it with chutney of your choice.
