Romanian golden bread.
- 2 cups yellow cornmeal
- 1 tsp. salt, or to taste
- 7 cups water (Use 8 cups of water for a softer mamaliga or 6 cups for a harder one).
Bring the water and salt to a boil. Pour a slow stream of cornmeal into the hot water while stirring vigorously to prevent lumps. After adding all the cornmeal stir for several minutes, then cover the pot. After about 10 minutes stir again, scraping the sides and bottom of the pan. Remove from heat and serve.
