Put the bulgur in a wide pot. Since bulgur swells, the pot should be large enough and not too deep as kneading will be done.
Pour boiling water over the bulgur, mix with a spoon equally, close the lid and leave for 10 minutes.
Put all oil in a saucepan, bring heat to low, add tomato and pepper paste firstly. After dissolving them into oil, add all other ingredients except pomegranate syrup. Cook only a little to reveal spice aroma.
Add the cooked mixture into the pot with bulgur and a few ice cubes or cold water. Start kneading strongly.
Knead constantly and add more ice or cold water if necessary. If sticky and non-crumbling balls can be formed when hand-shaped, it is ready (approx. 15-20 mins).
Shape the bulgur mixture with your hands, serve with lettuce and green vegetables.
