Artichoke Borani

(Enginar Borani)

Artichoke Borani
4-5 medium-sized Artichokes, cleaned; cut in medium size - both hearts and bottoms
1 cup water + juice of half a lemon
1 small onion, sliced
5-6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2-3 tbsp bulgur or rice, washed

Dill, chopped
Extra virgin olive oil

Garlic-Yogurt Sauce:
1⁄2 cup plain yogurt
1 garlic clove, mashed with salt

Leave the cleaned artichokes in the water & lemon juice mixture to prevent discoloration.

In a medium-sized pot, sauté the onion with salt and olive oil. Place the artichokes, bulgur and the water with lemon juice in it. The water should cover the artichokes. Cover and cook at medium-low heat until the artichokes are tender.

Let them cool down first. Then transfer to a serving dish. Drizzle them with more olive oil and garnish them with dill. Serve chilled or at room temperature with Garlic Yogurt Sauce.

Borani can be cooked with meat or any kind of vegetables with or without rice (or bulgur). Borani is usually served with yogurt:)
