Ingredients:
1 cup hulled wheat
Half cup sugar
2-3 cups water
Milk
Cinnamon or Vanilla essence

Method:
Wash the hulled wheat with some running clear water.
Put in a pot with enough water.
Leave to boil until it becomes soft and easily chewed…
Add the sugar and boil for five minutes.
You may add more water if needed.
When it is well done remove from stove and serve in bowl.
Add room temperature milk with cinnamon powder for flavour or vanilla.

This can be served either warm or cold.

Note:
this is an old Egyptian winter breakfast meal, very nutritious.
However it can be left to cool then add cold milk.
