Shrimp and Coconut Fried Bulgur Wheat

I ran across this great recipe from 9jafoodie.  Try it with Shrimp, Chicken or both! I couldn’t believe how much my kids liked it!
Ingredients
  • 2 cups bulgur wheat
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 ½ cups shrimp
  • 4 chicken drumsticks (bones removed and cut)
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil (divided)
  • 2 cubes maggi
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon each curry and thyme powder (divided)
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 cups mixed vegetables (Carrot, peas, cabbage, sweetcorn)
  • 1 green pepper (Tatashe) – Chopped
Directions
  1. Season chicken with some salt, maggi and pepper. Set aside
  2. Place a large pot (with a good fitting lid) on medium heat; add 1 part each of oil, curry, thyme, 1 cube maggi, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Stir. Add in coconut milk & 1 cup water. Cover the pot, increase heat to high and bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and add in the bulgur and stir. Cover the pot tightly and leave the rice to cook for 15 minutes. Set aside to cool
  4. Place another large pot on medium heat, add in the left over oil and heat slightly. Add in chicken and cook on all sides (about 5 minutes). Add all left over ingredients and cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Add in the precooked bulgur wheat, stir to combine. Taste and adjust for seasoning as needed.
