Yellow Brochan

In this video Paula prepares Yellow brochan - a cornmeal porridge dessert. Cornmeal (referred to in Ulster as Indian meal) is used frequently in Ulster-Scots-inspired dishes. Its distinctive yellow colour often results in dishes being referred to as yellow. Yellow soda is the name given to soda bread made with cornmeal.
