Cooking process

Why start the morning? Of course, with charging, well, and then necessarily reward your body with a full breakfast, and without porridge here can not do!

Corn porridge, of course, is very useful and nutritious. It will be an excellent breakfast option. And do not necessarily cook porridge on milk. In the post you can easily cook a delicious corn porridge on the water, which I did.

It is important to carefully choose corn groats before cooking it. Now on the store shelves a very large range of cereals, so there is plenty to choose from. It is better to buy corn groats in transparent bags – so when you buy you can see that there are no dirty particles and other debris inside. In cardboard – it is not known what they put.

To make the taste of lean corn porridge more refined, I added cinnamon, it turned out a very interesting combination. In ready-made corn porridge you can put sugar, honey or jam – what you like.

So, for the preparation of delicious corn porridge in the post we need the following ingredients.

Ingredients for lean corn porridge

Pour the corn into a sieve and rinse under a tap of cold water. Leave for a couple of minutes to drain.

Rinse the rump

At this time, pour into the pan 2 cups of filtered water and put it on the fire. Spread the croup, add salt and bring to a boil.

Add salt

Cook the porridge on a small fire under the almost closed lid until it evaporates and soaks up the liquid. This will take about 20 minutes.

Put the porridge to boil

After this time, lean corn porridge swells well, but that’s not all!

Cook porridge

Add a glass of hot water and cinnamon to taste. For sweetness, you can add sugar. I prefer to put honey or jam already when serving.

Pour cinnamon

Cook the porridge for another 10 minutes, also before absorbing water.

Stir the porridge with cinnamon

We remove the ready porridge from the fire, close the lid tightly and leave it to go for at least 15 minutes. Of course, the more time the porridge stands, the more delicious it will turn out. The best option is to leave the mess for the night. The liquid is completely absorbed and the croup is properly swollen.
