There are some kinds of cereals, which simply cook on a gas stove in a saucepan. These are cereals like rice, buckwheat, oatmeal and semolina. Another type constantly burns to the bottom or tries to "escape." With such cereals it is necessary to be more attentive. It is important to constantly be at the stove, stir and monitor the level of fire. Such dishes include porridge made from corn, barley, millet, wheat and barley grits.

Any porridge has certain cooking characteristics. You need to know such subtleties to cook delicious dishes. For example, even with the recipe, cooked rice porridge will stick slightly. In order to relieve the millet grain from the bitter taste, it is necessary to hold it for a while in cold water beforehand, and then rinse thoroughly more than once. Barley necessarily soak in the evening, and cook in the morning. Then the process of cooking in a microwave will take less time. When cooking semolina constantly stir porridge to prevent sedimentation of grains on the bottom and the appearance of unnecessary lumps.

    A really quick way, but is such porridge useful for very small children, or is it still better to cook oatmeal in the traditional way?
