Polenta - Recipe

By Lorena Matei

I would like to give you the recipe of a traditional Romanian dish: polenta (mamaliga). It used to be consumed on a daily basis at the countryside and it replaced bread. Today polenta is an excellent side dish for sarmale (sufeed cabbage rolls) or stews.

You will need:

- 4 cups of water

- 1 pound ground cornmeal

- 1 teaspoon of salt

How to prepare it: Bring to boil the water in a large pot with the salt, then simmer and pour with a steady stream the cornmeal. Stir constantly for about 20 minutes with a wooden spoon. The cooked mamaliga should be thick enough to stay in place on a wooden plate
