Mamalyga is considered a dish of Moldavian, Romanian and Western Ukrainian cuisine. In fact, such a dish exists in a number of Caucasian countries, and in Italy, polenta is an analogue. It is prepared from corn flour and is a kind of porridge - dough.
To make cornmeal hominy, you need the ingredients from the list.
Almost all recipes for making hominy say that salt should be put in boiling water and flour slowly, stirring confidently so that there are no lumps. I want to propose another way, spied on by an Italian woman who cooked palentos, and they are very similar. With this method, there will be no lumps. Pour water into a saucepan with a thick bottom. Add salt.
Add a third of the cornmeal to cold water and stir. The flour will settle to the bottom without forming lumps.
Here you can see that there are no lumps.
Now put the saucepan over medium heat and, stirring occasionally, bring to a boil. You will have a smooth, creamy mass. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon for 10 minutes. Then gradually add the remaining flour and stir well. It is most convenient to stir it with a wooden spoon. Mamalyga will begin to thicken gradually.
Continue to cook it for another 25 minutes, until it becomes one lump. When crusts form on the sides of the pan, the hominy is ready.
Put the finished hominy on a dish and pour with butter.
Traditionally, hominy made from corn flour is served with feta cheese, milk, cracklings. It is ideal as a side dish for meat and fish.
Enjoy your meal!
