These delicious baked bulgar balls are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. They are very simple to make and you only need 4 main ingredients.
To make them gluten-free, simply replace bulgur with rice.
2 cups bulgur
8 pitted prunes (or apricots)
3 tbsp chickpeas flour
1/4 cup chopped parsley (optional)
1- Cook the bulgur base using the packaging instructions and transfer it to a strainer. Make sure it doesn’t have excess liquid.
2- Mix the cooked bulgur, Exotic Bazaar's Gheymeh Aromatic Spice & Persian Lime sauce , chickpea flour and chopped parsley. The ingredients should hold together.
*add extra chickpea flour if needed to help bind the ingredients together.
3- Line a baking tray with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 180C (fan-forced)
4- Spoon the bulgur mix and flatten into the palm of your hand. Insert a prune or apricot in the middle and fold over the mixture to form a ball shape.
5- Place the bulgur balls on the baking tray and spray them with olive oil.
6- In a preheated oven, bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden coloured.
7- Serve with salad and pickles of your choice.
