Couche-Couche

2002-05-28

Ingredients

  • 5 tbsp cooking oil
  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups milk

Directions

Step 1

Pour four of the five tablespoons of cooking oil into a heavy iron skillet or saucepan that has a tight lid. Let it heat while you mix the remaining ingredients in the order given. Last, add the remaining tablespoon of cooking oil and pour the whole mixture into the hot cooking oil. Lower heat to medium and let cook.

Step 2

Keep stirring about every three minutes, being sure to scrape the bottom of the pot each time. Cook, covering the pan tightly, until couche-couche reaches the consistency of crumbled up corn bread (about 20 minutes).

Note: Milk is the correct wetting agent in this recipe. Some Couch-Couch recipes use water (for the water-version of the Cush-Cush, see our website).
