Whole wheat that has been cracked, washed, parboiled (or steamed), dried, and then crushed into different sizes is known as bulgur (occasionally written bulghur). Bulgur is offered based on size. It's not cracked wheat—whole raw wheat berries ground into tiny pieces by a mill. Bulgur is made out of parboiled whole or crushed partly debanned wheat grains. It may be used in place of rice in recipes like pilaf, an eastern European meal made of cooked wheat, pork, oil, and herbs.
