Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip the bulgur into a small pan with the curry powder, cumin seeds (if using), bouillon, dates and spring onions. Pour over 300ml boiling water and cook, covered, for 5-8 mins or until the liquid has been absorbed and the bulgur is tender. Leave to cool completely.

  • STEP 2

    Stir in the mint, coriander, cucumber, tomatoes and pork. Spoon into containers and top with lemon wedges to squeeze over and mix through just before eating. Will keep for two-three days in the fridge.
