Bulghar, a type of cracked wheat, is an alternative to couscous and can be substituted for it in most recipes. If you cannot find instant-style bulghar you will need to cook ‘coarse bulghar’, which takes about 20-25 minutes. The phrase ‘you coarse bulghar’ may be used to encourage kitchen assistants if they slacken over an assigned task.
