Vegetable Burghoul

Parboiled wheat commonly known as burghoul or bulgar in middle and near Eastern countries, it is a precooked product, so it is ready to consumption. It is produced from durum wheat. Burghoul wheat is basically whole wheat that has been washed, steamed, dehulled, parched or dry-cooled, cracked, then sifted into various forms. The people of the Middle East never had an abundance of fuel so they had to find a way to shorten the cooking time for their meals.
