Preparing corn flour dish with cheese- Ghomi

Pour water into the pot, add rice, and add a little salt; Put it on medium heat, when it boils, turn it down to low heat and leave it to cook. When the rice will be well cooked, add the flour. Note that the amount of water should be sufficient; Stir the rice continuously with a wooden spoon or a special wooden stick, while adding flour in small portions with the other hand. When it is so thick that the spoon will stand freely on its own for a few seconds, it means that there is enough flour and now it needs to be soaked. To do this, leave it on very low heat, covered, for 30-40 minutes.

After 30-40 minutes you can divide it among the plates and put cheese in each of them.

Note that the Ghomi is brought to the table immediately after removing it, however, you can transfer it from the plate to the pan and fry it late.

The cornmeal dish goes very well with Georgian Baje, you can eat it with Satsivi or Kharcho as well.
