Russian kasha

I had a chance to try something Russian, called kasha, a Russian friend Mikhael prepared. It’s generally porridge made from cereal of all types, but I think it’s common for them to use buckwheat. It’s not like our porridge, where you practically can’t see the rice when it’s done. It’s added with milk and honey. Even though it seems like a simple meal, but it was really filling after a bowl. With a little help from wikipedia, it says that it’s one of the oldest known dishes in Eastern European Slavic cuisine and it’s a thousand years old!

我有个俄罗斯朋友Mikhael之前请我吃一种俄国的食物,叫kasha。它大体上是粥,但可以用不同种类的谷类来做。他们通常是用荞麦,绝对不是用白米。跟我们煮的粥不一样,我们的完成后是液状,而这个是看见一粒粒的谷类。而且这个煮好了,还要加上牛奶和蜜糖。虽然看起来很简单的一餐,但是吃下去一碗就饱了。上网查看后,才知道这个简单的美味一千年前就有了,是古代东欧的美食。
