Cream of Wheat Porridge

Porridge is a traditional breakfast in much of Northern Europe and Russia often with the addition of salt, sugar, milk or cream.

Indians have their own version of porridge - the uppma - a fried semolina (sooji) porridge traditional in southern India; flavored with clarified butter (ghee),ginger, fried onions, toasted mustard seeds, curry leaves; often mixed with vegetables and toasted peanuts or cashew nuts.

My kids love it for breakfast where they pretend to be "Goldilocks" from Goldilocks and the Three Bears story. My little one always wondering how Mamma bear made the porridge :).When it is served they always say ...
"This porridge is too hot!"
"This porridge is too cold!"
"Aaahhh This porridge is just right!"

  1. Cream of wheat/Rava/Sooji - 3 tbsp
  2. Milk - 1 cup
  3. Sugar - 2 tsp
  4. Salt - a pinch

Add the milk to a saucepan and sprinkle the rava on top .
Add in the sugar and salt and bring to a simmer.
Cook on medium flame until the porridge starts to thicken (about 7-8 minutes)
Serve hot adding more sugar if you like it sweeter.
