    My parents grew up on mamaliga,this was eaten instead of bread. Now it's made just occasionally to eat it with cheese and sour cream or with a chicken stew with onions. Mine is soaking in sour cream and I''ve had it with ricotta too. When I was a child,my dad use to form a ball out of it filled with goat's cheese. By the time I got to eat it,the cheese melted. So this is definetely Romanian.

    This is very good carb side. We love cornmeal, but it is a bit different for us to serve with goat cheese, although it is interesting! We will definitely try this again! Thanks, Sydney Mike! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.

    This recipe is, in fact, a rule for making the very popular Romanian cornmeal mush, or as it's called...mamaliga. The addition of goat cheese sounds good..so does lots of sour cream to top it off. Good luck.

    i am not roumanian, but my former m-i-l was and she made this stuff all of the time. i know for a fact that she was never out of the usa and never on the african continent. i am pretty sure this is a roumanian recipe, not an african one. however, that being said, it sounds good, especially with the goat cheese and i will put it in my round tuit cookbook to try
