The recipe below is vegan, for the dairy version: replace one cup of the water with a cup of milk, add a tablespoon of melted butter to the finished product, crumble a handful of rich Bulgarian cheese and/or a handful of grated Kashkaval, mix gently and place a dollop of sour cream on top.
Ingredients for Mamaliga
- 1 quart (4 cups) water
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1 cup cornmeal
1. Boil the water with the salt. Lower to a medium heat and gradually add the cornmeal to the pot, stirring briskly with a whisk. Continue cooking for about 7 minutes, whisking continuously, until a homogeneous mixture forms. If the mamaliga is too bubbly, lower the flame.
2. For the dairy version, serve with crumbled feta cheese and sour cream.
