Wheat Porridge

This is a very simple porridge that I really enjoy for breakfast or as a light evening meal. It is simply wheat flour, cooked as a porridge.

1 1/2 Stew spoonfuls wheat flour
2 cups of water
pinch of salt
Sugar / Sweetener

Measure out your wheat flour into a pot.

Add 1 1/2 cups of the water and put it on the fire. Add a pinch of salt and stir it continously until it starts to thicken.  If you stop stirring it will form lumps at the bottom of the pot. When  it strart to thicken, add the rest of the water if it is too thick, otherwise, just cover it and leave it to cook for about 5 minutes.

Pour into a bowl, add your milk and sweetener. I use powdered or evaporated milk (Ideal milk) fresh milk makes the porridge too watery for my liking. Otherwise you could incoporate it into the cooking, or make the porridge extra thick with the fresh milk in mind, so that it reaches the thickness you like when you add it.

I like it with wheat bread, which I tear into bite-size pieces and dunk in it. Sometimes I add bits of banana.
