Bijug – Bulgur Patties in Tomato Sauce – a dish from the Sasun
Ingredients for bulgur patties: Measure the following to suit your taste: garlic (mashed or
powder), red and black pepper, dry basil, dried thyme, and salt
Ingredients for the sauce:
Combine the flour, bulgur, and seasonings to taste; knead
with just enough water for the ingredients to hold together well. Pinch-off
pieces and roll into balls the size of walnuts.
Flatten the balls and cook them in gently boiling
salted water. Remove from water and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Place patties in a serving bowl; cover to keep them warm.
Fry the chopped onions in the oil; add the tomato paste
that’s been diluted with enough water to create a sauce; add salt to taste. Bring
to a boil and pour over the flattened balls; serve.
