    windhorse23's Note:

    I found this on the Desitwist website, and I wanted it to complete my A to Z collection of recipes (my Around the World Cookbook). Also known as Farina, Sameed, Cream of Wheat. Serving size is a guess. I definitely recommend a nonstick saucepan. This worked fine with fat free milk and "quick" farina. If you are not used to cardamon, you might want to reduce the amount.

      Made this for January Tag Game - 2011 and really enjoyed it. DH, not so much. He said "there's a funny taste" I personaly loved it but my suggestion is if you arn't used to the rose water, go easy on it. I did make it with cream of rice as that's what I had on hand and then followed the recipe. Served with a sprinkling of sugar, pat of butter and DH added milk to his. I'll be making this again, but only when it's me.

      Enjoyed this for a nice hot breakfast! I scaled it back to 2 servings and reduced the cardamom just a bit. Cooking the farina in milk gave it a rich taste and I enjoyed the spicy/sweet flavor of the cardamom. Thank for sharing your recipe!

      Delicious, quick and easy to make! I used the optional rosewater and would strongly suggest not omitting it. The rosewater is like the icing on the cake. The mixture was brought *almost* to the boil and the rosewater was stirred in right before serving. Garnished with sesame seeds and slivers of dried dates. Thanks! Reviewed for NA*ME Explores Oman.
