Like most Russian children (and kids world-wide), breakfast-type kasha is hated with a passion. For mothers, though, kasha is the food of the Gods, it is a wonderful, healthy breakfast. Serve this kasha with different jams, preserved fruits or honey
- In a small saucepan, bring milk to boil. Stir semolina in gradually.
- Add butter, sugar and salt.
- Bring to a boil once again, reduce heat and simmer on low heat for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Serve with jam, honey or fruits.
Great breakfast dish. Sure i say that now that i'm a mother, but growin up in Russia having to eat this quite often, i wasn't thrilled with it. The way my father got me to eat it - he would shred chocolate into it instead of jam or honey. Was so yummy. and i don't think my mom put any sugar - the milk is sweet enough, plus the chocolate... Anyway, I suggest - try adding chocolate chips. Stir it a bit just to add the 'marble' visual effect as the chocolate melts, and serve. Your kids will eat it up (as did i)
