About Food – Mchadi (Georgian Cornbread)
Mchadi is a very popular cornbread traditionally eaten with lobio (beans) and cheese.
Ingredients (for 6 servings). 400 grams of stone-ground cornmeal (preferably white), 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1 cup of cold water (may need more depending on the cornmeal).
Stone-ground white cornmeal
Preparation. Add water to the cornmeal little by little so that the cornmeal becomes firm but not wet.
When the dough is ready, take a piece and make a small ball. Shape the ball in the palm of your hand until it looks like the one in the picture above.
Heat the oil in a pan (medium heat) and add the dough. Smooth each piece with the back of a wet spoon.
Cover and cook for 5-6 minutes. Turn the dough over and cook uncovered for a further 5-6 minutes. The Mchadi are golden brown when ready.
