TAVUKLU FİRİK PİLAVI


































FIRIK(GRILLED WHEAT) & CHICKEN PILAF

Firik is grilled wheat. We use it just like bulgur to make this special pilaf in my hometown. Wheat is harvested and burnt just before it is completely mature so it leaves a smoky flavor. You can easily get it from Middle Eastern store.

Ingredients:
  • 3 pieceses of chicken leg quarter
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 cup of coarse bulgur
  • 1 cup of firik
  • 1/2 cup of uncooked chickpeas
  • 1/3 tsp of ground black pepper
  • salt
Soak chickpeas with two cups of water overnight. Next day,wash and drain chicken and chickpeas. Take it in a pressure cooker and add 4 cups of cold water. Bring it to the boil. You will see some foam on the surface when it starts to boil. Take them all with a spoon and discard.Add black pepper. Close the lid of pressure cooker and turn the heat down to low. Cook the chicken for 15 minutes at low heat. Take the pressure cooker and let it cool. Open the lid when it is cool enough and take the chicken and chickpeas out in a plate leaving meat broth in the pressure cooker. Take the bones of chicken and cut them into coarse pieces. 
Take chicken broth in a large pot and bring it to the boil. Add firik, bulgur, chicken pieces, chickpeas and salt in it and stir. Turn the heat down th low. Cover the lid. Simmer for 30 minutes. Turn the heat off. Let it rest for 30 minute before serve.
