Bulgur is not among the most popular cereals, but on the other hand, it is quite healthy. Bulgur is a very good quality wheat that has been previously dried, crushed and peeled with boiling water.

Now we will find out if it is good to wash and soak the bulgur before we start cooking it. Basically, there are two opinions on the matter - yes and no.

Should we wash and soak bulgur before cooking?

As we said above, since bulgur undergoes heat treatment when it is produced, it does not need to be rinsed.

To make bulgur tastier and more aromatic, washing and soaking it is not recommended.

You just need to lightly fry it in oil. In this way, a pleasant smell of walnuts will be released.

And here's how to prepare it:

- put oil on the bottom of a pan and heat it;

- the bulgur is fried in it for a few minutes to release the aroma;

- pour cold water and let it cool;

- then it is boiled.

And finally, we will say that bulgur is delicious prepared in any way, but as you already know that - it is not necessary to soak or wash it before cooking it.
