  • 3 potatoes
  • 1 cup of extra fine bulgur
  • 1 small size of onion (finely chopped )
  • 3 cloves of garlic (finely chopped )
  • 1/3 bunch of parsley (finely chopped )
  • 10 green onion (finely chopped )
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of black pepper
  • 2 tbsp of hot red pepper paste
  • 2 tbsp of tomato paste
  • 3  tbsp of ground red pepper
  • salt
Wash potatoes. Take them in a medium pot and cover them with just enough cool water to cook. Turn the heat on high and bring it to the boil then turn the heat down to low. Turn the heat off when potatoes are soft.  Peel potatoes while they are still hot. Take them in a large mixing bowl and mush them.  Add bulgur to the same mixing bowl and stir. Cover the lid and let it sit for 20 minutes.

Take the potato-bulgur mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add chopped onion, chopped garlic, tomato paste, red pepper paste, black pepper, ground red pepper and salt to the bowl and knead it until well combined ( about 15 minutes). Add olive oil and knead again.Then add chopped green onion, chopped parsley, and knead again.
Place some lettuce leaves on a serving dish. Take a small piece of mixture ( about the size of a walnut ) and give it a shape of football with your palm and put it on the lettuce leaves.
Serve it with ayran and pickles.
