HOW TO MAKE LAMB CUTLETS WITH HARISSA AND POMEGRANATE MOLASSES

2. Put the bulgar wheat and stock into a saucepan. Bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10-12 minutes. Strain and toss with the tomatoes, spring onions, sherry vinegar and olive oil. Stir through the herbs and season. Serve the cutlets with the bulgar wheat and labneh.
