1. Fine or Medium Grain Bulgur: Add a cup of bulgur to a heat-resistant bowl. For fine grind bulgur top it with 1 cup of boiling water and a pinch of salt and let stand for 7-10 minutes. For medium grind, add a cup of bulgar to a heat-resistant bowl and top with 1 1/2 cups boiling water and let sit for about 15 minutes.


2. Course bulgar needs to be cooked on a stovetop. To do so add 1 cup of coarse bulgur to a small pot and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and let simmer for 15 minutes covered with a lid or until the liquid has been absorbed.


3. Once the water has been absorbed, fluff up the bulgur with a spoon and serve.
