DIRECTIONS

  • First, pour the cornmeal and 2 cups of the cold water into a large bowl. Whisk it so there are no lumps.
  • Next, pour the remaining 4 cups of water and the salt into a pot, and bring to a boil.
  • Now, gradually stir in the cornmeal and cold water mixture.
  • Let the cornmeal and water simmer gently. Stir frequently, so there's no sticking. It will take about 30 minutes until it's very thick.
  • At the end, mix in the butter.
  • Butter a bowl for the polenta to cool. The polenta will take shape of the bowl after sitting for about 10 minutes.
  • Once it's set, invert the polenta onto a flat plate. You can cut it into thick slices and top with tomato sauce and grated cheese.
