Step 1

Check lentils for stones that need to be discarded

Step 2

Wash and soak for a couple of hours (I do this to speed up the cooking process)

Step 3

After soaking lentils, discard and wash lentils to rid any excess sediment

Step 4

Place lentils in a large pot with water, bring to boil

Step 5

Cover the pot of lentils and simmer over low heat about 10 minutes or until lentils are par cooked.

Step 6

Drain par cooked lentils in a colander and save liquid. You will use this later

Step 7

Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat

Step 8

Cook the onions for about 30-40 minutes, stirring every few minutes until they are dark golden brown. (You'll need to be patient for this step - the onions must be like this as the dish relies on the taste of the caramelised onion)

Step 9

Once onions are a dark golden colour, pour the liquid from the lentils into the onions and let it simmer for a couple of minutes to combine.

Step 10

Add the cooked lentils, salt (to taste) and cracked wheat (bulgur), stir through thoroughly.

Step 11

Cover the saucepan and cook over very low heat for 25-30 minutes.
