What Is Kaszka and How to Use It as a Breakfast Recipe

I used to work in my family's restaurant and helped run it. I love good food, and I've cooked family meals for over 60 years.

What Is Kaszka?

We are blessed with lots of international food shops where I live in Lodon and can buy a huge variety of international foods. There is a grocery nearby which specialises in Polish food and among other thngs I noticed some kaszka. I recognized the name--it is a cereal powder based on rice. I didn't know what it was like, but as I enjoy experimenting with food, I bought a packet. Even though the only instructions were in Polish, there were illustrations on the packaging so I was not completely in the dark, and, of course, one can find information about most things on the internet, so it was only a minor risk.

Experimenting With New Ingredients

I had also recently bought a carton of Alpro coconut milk for the first time, so I decided to combine them.


I ladled a couple of tablespoons of kaszka into a cereal bowl and added some warm milk and combined the two ingredients to produce a smooth paste, which tasted quite nice. It was unexpectedly sweet, and was very similar to my usual rice pudding, but quite a bit smoother.

Trying out Kaszka to Create a Nutritious and Pleasant Breakfast Cereal

Using a bit more of the packet, I tried out making the kaszka base into a nice cereal instead of a pudding, so I so I repeated the quantity of kaszka but added Alpro coconut milk together with some dried fruit (consisting of chopped dates raisins and Cranberries) mixed in with some flaked coconut. I then microwaved the mixture for one minute to warm it. It was a success and definitely worth having again for a quick and easy breakfast.
