Asure - Noah's Pudding
Yes, today is the day we called Asura in Islam. I would love to give what happened in this day in details unfortunately I am so busy at work since it is month end closing. Maybe I can update this post later. when I first read, I was surprised how magical things happened to many of prophets in the same day(10th of Muharram according to lunar calendar).
But I would like to give my recipe of Noah's pudding incase you want to cook. It is another recipe where you feel free to add anything according to your taste. There are basic ingredients and than others are optional. Here are the list that I used to make pudding;
1 cup soaked and boiled shelled wheat
1 cup soaked and boiled dried beans
1 cup soaked and boiled garbanzo beans
1+1/2 cup sugar ( you may substitude molasses or honey)
A pinch of rice
A pinch of sesame
A pinch of cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1 small peeled and chopped apple
1/2 orange skin chopped
1/2 lemon skin chopped
12 chopped dried apricots
6 chopped dried figs
1/2 cup raisins
Choose your biggest pot and bring 2 liters of water to boil. Than add wheat, dried beans and garbanzo beans.Cook them around 10 minutes.After 10 minutes start adding other optional ingredients one by one but please do not forget to take cinnamon stick after you turn the heat off. It becomes thicker as you put all ingredients and they start to boil.As a final add its sugar till you like (it may be more or less than what I wrote) and let it boil 5 more minutes then turn the heat off. Leave the pot for couple hours to set but if you like warm pudding you can start tasting with adding its topping.
As I write at the beginning this is how I like to eat. I like my Noah's pudding darker thus I use cinnamon stick while cooking. Some people prefer not to use it and add ground cinnamon as topping. Again it is open to your imagination. So pelase feel free to try and create your own Noah's Pudding Recipe! Afiyet olsun!
