Khabeesa (Omani Breakfast Item)
15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
6 ingredients
6 servings
I found this on the Desitwist website, and I wanted it to complete my A to Z collection of recipes (my Around the World Cookbook). Also known as Farina, Sameed, Cream of Wheat. Serving size is a guess. I definitely recommend a nonstick saucepan. This worked fine with fat free milk and "quick" farina. If you are not used to cardamon, you might want to reduce the amount.
