How to cook Kasha

Hello Everyone!!!

Today we are making Kasha, it is one of the Russian national dishes, together with Shchi. Kasha is commemorated in the Russian saying, “Shchi da kasha – pishcha nasha” literally “shchi and kasha are our food” or, more loosely, “cabbage soup and porridge are what we eat”.

Working onboard with the Russian crew, Kasha along with Potatoes are the most common dish on our buffet while we Filipinos have rice all day. Cooking kasha is similar to cooking rice, just boil it with water, reduce heat and cover until it is cooked.

Butter is an essential ingredient in most kashas. hence the Russian saying, “you’ll never spoil a kasha with a lot of butter”.
