¾ Cup Bulgur Wheat (Fine) 

1 Cup Water 

Salt & Pepper 


4 Cups Flour + extra for dusting 

½ Cup Soybean or Vegetable Oil 

1 ½ Cup Water 

Pinch of Salt 


  1. Add flour, water, oil & salt in a bowl and mix until dough is formed. Shape into a large ball and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside and let rest for 10-15 minutes.  
  1. Boil 1 cup water and add to a bowl with bulgur. Cover with plastic wrap and allow bulgur to absorb the water.  
  1. In a small skillet, heat the oil and add the thin noodle. Sautee for a few minutes until slightly browned.
