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.
200 g cornmeal
7 oz cornmeal
- Add the milk and 1 tsp honey to saucepan. Bring to boil.
- Sprinkle the cornmeal onto the milk and stir.
- Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally until it forms a smooth porridge consistency.
- Serve in bowls. Drizzle the brochan with cream and honey and decorate with raspberries.
