Wheat bulgur with Orange Juice Salad - Healthy salad recipe - Healthy starter recipe

My mum uses more wheat bulgur in her cooking than me. So when Sonali Phatak Mahajan of Sony's kitchen gave me wheat bulgur and orange juice I readily accepted it. When I first saw the ingredients first thing came to my mind was salad. When I asked my mum she told me she does mostly pongal not salad. So I made my own seasoning for this salad. It turn out to be pretty tasty. Perfect starter. This post goes to


wheat bulgur - 1/2 cup
Orange Juice - 3/4 cup ( I have used freshly squeezed juice)
Pepper powder - 1/2 teaspoon to 3/4 teaspoon (adjust to spice level)
Dijon mustard paste - 1/2 teaspoon
Onion - 1/2 sliced thinly
Capsicum - 2 tablespoon (sliced thinly)
Salt to taste
Olive oil - 2 teaspoon
Coriander leaves / cilantro  - 1/4 cup (finely chopped)


Cook Wheat bulgur with water and salt till 3/4th cooked. Add Orange juice and continue to cook till juice is fully absorbed.

Heat the pan and add oil. Add onion and fry till they are transparent. Add Capsicum and bit of salt (just enough for onion and capsicum) cook it. Add pepper powder and mustard paste and cooked wheat bulgur. Mix well. Stir it for 1 to 2 mins.
Add chopped coriander leaves mix well.

Allow it to sit for 1 hours min. Enjoy!
