Milky Cardamom Macaroni porridge

I remember that my mom used to make this milk and macaroni porridge when I was little and I just loved it. It has followed me trough the years and now I make it for my little one….funny how these things work. The other day I just wanted to posh it up a bit and I added some ground cardamom seeds and it worked really well. If you don’t have cardamom pods you can always add some cardamom extract (kardamommu dropa) instead.

1L milk
5dl macaroni
2tbsp sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp cardamom
½ tsp nutmeg

Pour the milk into a pot and turn the heat to high. Add the macaroni and stir so the macaroni does not stick. Bash the cardamom pods in a pestle and mortal, remove the skins and bash the seeds until they are fine powder. Add the sugar, vanilla, cardamom and nutmeg to the pot and stir together. Bring it to the boil while stirring well. Turn the heat down and keep stirring until the macaroni is cooked (approx. 10-12 minutes) and the milk has thickened.

Serve with some sugar and cinnamon.

lýst vel á þetta, ég er alltaf að búa til makkarónugraut. Ánægður með að geta breytt honum aðeins, hvað er þetta neðsta, nut-eitthvað?

Pottþétt einn af "uppáhalds"í gamla daga. Reyndar án múskats en sannarlega áhugavert að prófa næst þegar makkarónusúpa verður á boðstólnum

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You definitely know what youre talking about,
why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your
site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
