Christmas Eastern European Wheat Berry Porridge [Kutya]
I often get the questions about my heritage, so I decided that today I would share with you something from my childhood. Where I grew up in Eastern Europe, we have a tradition of serving Kutya during the Christmas season. Kutya is a Wheat Berry Porridge. After the dish is prepared, the children would take it around to family and friends homes, sharing wishes of prosperity in the New Year.
It generally takes all day to prepare, but in the video below I will show you how to make it with a grain blend that takes just a few minutes. Keeping it simple, quick, and colorful, you might find yourself making this throughout the year.
From all of us here at Good Cravings, we wish you, your friends, and your family, a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.
