Add garam masala spice and allow to cook for about 5 minutes.
Add the oven-cooked meatballs and coat with the gravy. Continue to cook for 10 minutes.
Add yogurt, dried thyme and chopped cilantro leaves.
In a medium size pot, add the bulgur, cinnamon, pinch of salt and lime if you are using. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 25 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and fold in the tomato and parsley.
