I make this once a week now, it's excellent. Sometimes I make it with Quinoa instead of Bulgar Wheat. Another Binnur triumph!!

Hi Binnur,

I have a question. I made a bulgur salad yesterday, but used a medium grain bulgur. Now my husband is arguing with me that it is not "correct". What is the difference?

Hi Jana,
I use large grain to make Kisir but you may also use small grain to do it. It depends on how you like it.
