Bulgar wheat question

Hi All,

For a while now I have been getting some really fine bulgar from a turkish shop. At work, if i'm a bit hungry, ill make a cup of tea and wack the remainder of boiled water from the kettle over a bowl of bulgar. 15 minutes later, i simply eat it... it tastes excellent!

having looked on the web to confirm that this is not slowly poisoning me or something lol, I see that most people say to boil for 20 minutes etc. or soak for 30 minutes and then boil....?

I dont get it, it's absolutely perfect just covering with hot water from the kettle and letting stand of its own accord for 10-15mins and it is soft and tender.

Is there anything wrong with this method?



Thanks!
A

Just kidding. Reminded me of this recent thread: Hot or Cold water to Boil water question.

thanks guys, now i know im not going to die from eating it that way

BTW I'm not a bad cook but always like to be careful when stuff i do doesn't matched up with the internet. eg, slow cooking haricot beans may make them lovely and tender, but you wouldn't feel too good after!

thanks!
