Preparing Ashura: A healthy option

Here is a great recipe using organic wheat grain. Ashura is typically prepared on the tenth of Muharram, which is the first month of the Islamic calendar. Suma Organic Wheat Grain is captureavailable from the Suma Specialist Wholesalers online store, where you can also receive a free cookbook with any purchase from the site.

Preparing a dish like this will ensure a meal which is a good source of complex carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals, high in fiber and low in fat. Additionally, whole grains can be eaten on their own, added to soups and stews or used for baking.

To begin with, here are the ingredients:

  • Four hundred and fifty grams of Suma Organic Wheat Grain
  • One pint of milk
  • One tablespoon of cornstarch
  • Two hundred and twenty-five grams of Suma Organic Raw Cane Sugar
  • One tablespoon of butter

captureOther ingredients for the topping:

  • One tablespoon of Suma Organic Raisins
  • One tablespoon of Suma Mixed Nuts
  • One tablespoon of Suma Organic Ground Cinnamon
  • One tablespoon of butter

Now, follow this method carefully:

Place your whole wheat grain into an earthenware pot and cover the grain with three times its volume of water. Leave it to stand for four to six hours in a warm place.

Drain the grain in your pot and then pour warm water over to cover it and then let it boil over a low heat for around fifteen minutes or so. Once it has boiled, drain the water from it once more.

Next, dissolve the sugar in the pint of milk and add the cornstarch, mixing it in well. Then, simply pour the mixture over the wheat grain.

Now, place your pot on a low heat once more, allowing it to simmer for just ten minutes. Once you have let it simmer, pour it into a serving bowl and leave it to cool.

For your toppings, fry your raisins in a touch of butter, very lightly, so they swell a little. Mix them with some nuts and cinnamon and sprinkle them on top of your Ashura.

This recipe is suitable for four servings and great for the family!
