Kisir is a traditional Turkish side dish made from fine bulgur (cracked wheat), parsley, and tomato paste. It can be eaten cold and used as a salad or “meze” (appetizer beside the alcoholic drink).
Toss and serve. This recipe goes well with Ayran. Keep refrigerated as Kisir is best served cold.
*This is a vegetarian dish.
— 2 cups of bulgur (fine or medium fine type)
— 5-6 scallions chopped
— 1 tomato chopped
— 1 green pepper chopped
— 1 cucumber chopped
— 1 lemon juice
— 2-3 Tbs red pepper (sweet) or tomato paste
— 2 tsp cumin
— salt, black pepper, red pepper to taste
Cover the bulgur with boiling water, set it aside. The water and the bulgur should be at the same level. While you’re busy with chopping all the veggies the bulgur absorbs the water. Mix the paste and the spices thoroughly. After that just add the veggies. You can use lemon and vegetable/olive oil as dressing.
