Sweet Wheat Berry Pudding - Kutia

Today is the old-fashioned Christmas Eve, which is celebrated at my parents' house. Last year I showed how I made Braided Bread with my grandmother, now I show you another food that has not been missing in a year since I know myself, namely Christmas, it is about boiled wheat, or Kutia.

So you can make boiled wheat at any time of the year, being whole wheat grain I really recommend this dessert to those who want a balanced diet. You can sweeten and straighten it with whatever you like - sugar, honey, sweetener, walnut, poppy, coconut, vanilla, various essences - all to your liking and taste.

The most common variant that we ate at home with my grandmother was with sugar and nuts - wheat berry boiled for about half a day on the stove, we took a little from there and mixed with sugar and walnuts each in his plate - the most memorable dessert of my childhood.

Ingredients

Wheat berries
500 g
Sugar
5 tbsp
or any other sweetener you will like
Walnuts
200 g
you can add poppy seeds, coconut, prunes, etc
Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp
or other favorite flavors, is optional

Step by step

1

Whole wheat is prepared in advance - at home, about a week before, we all sit down and choose wheat for Christmas (not to have dirt, pebbles, etc.).

Now I adapt, I bought clean and well-chosen wheat from the health food store.

2

The night before Eve, wash well, then let it soak in plenty of water overnight.

3

Then the water in which he stayed at night drains, move to the pot / tuci and pour a lot of clean water over it, about 1 to 3, you can see in the pot in the picture.

4

When it starts to boil, make the fire very low and leave it for 3-4 hours, stirring periodically in it.

If you notice that there is not enough water along the way, add more boiling hot water.

I boiled it in a multicooker, on a stew basis for 4 hours, I mixed it 1 time, and it was enough :)

5

This is what boiled wheat looks like - the grains are cracked, the water is cloudy and dense.

However, the simplest test is to taste it, of course, the beans are boiled but still slightly elastic.

6

You can mix it in time with sugar, nuts and various flavors. It is just as good and hot and cold.

7

I recommend roasting the walnuts for 10 minutes in the oven or on the pan. Then crush them a little with the bottom of a cup or glass.

8

This is what the dessert looks like on the Christmas table, beautifully decorated with plums and nuts.

Cold wheat becomes denser, you can dilute it with a little hot water and make it of the consistency you like.

Good appetite!
