Cooking kutya from rice:

Step 1: Prepare Raisins

We spread the raisins in a deep bowl and rinse well under running water. Then pour the component with boiling water and leave aside for 10 minutes. After the allotted time, carefully drain the water, and pour raisins on kitchen paper towels. Leave it in this position until it dries.

Step 2: prepare honey.

Over time, honey will become sugar, so put it in a Turk and put it on a small fire. Constantly stirring with a tablespoon, bring the component to a liquid state. Immediately after that, turn off the burner, and set the capacity aside.

Step 3: prepare the pic.

Pour rice into a sieve and rinse thoroughly under running water. We do this until the liquid becomes clear. Immediately after that, leave the component aside so that excess water comes out of the glass.

Step 4: prepare a kuta of rice.

Kutia is a dish that is most often prepared on the eve of Christmas, Epiphany and the old New Year. They are also often treated to relatives to remember loved ones. According to legend, grains of rice or wheat are considered a symbol of rebirth. As they sprout, so the human soul is reborn after it leaves for another world. That is why it is very important to put this dish on the table on parental funeral days, as well as on Great religious dates. So, first of all, pour the rice into a medium saucepan and pour clean cold water. We put the container on medium heat, slightly covering it with a lid. When the liquid boils, we turn off the fire, salt the cereals to taste, mix well with a tablespoon and cook until all the water has evaporated. We should get crisp rice. Immediately after that, turn off the burner, and pour the contents of the pan, holding the kitchen tacks, into a sieve. We rinse the rice under running cold water and leave it for a while aside, so that excess liquid comes out of it.

At the end, we transfer the cooked cereals back to the pan, and also add raisins and melted honey here. Using a tablespoon, mix everything well until smooth and we can serve it to the dining table.

Step 5: serve the rice kuta.

Using a tablespoon, we shift the kuta from rice into a special plate and serve it at the dinner table. This dish can be eaten both warm and cold. By tradition, before you pour yourself the main food, you must definitely try a tablespoon of kutya.
