Polenta with smoked ham - topped with yoghurt infused with a hint of chilli and corriander - Palenta/Kacamak

I love polenta as a light side dish or meal. Its quick and easy to make and the corn flour is healthy.


Corn Flour/Polenta Mix
25g butter
75ml milk
Greek Style yogurt
Sour Cream
Smoked Ham/Prosciutto (finely chopped)
Coriander/Parsley (finely chopped)
Fresh Chillies/Paprika


Bring water and butter to boil and gradually add the corn flour or Polenta Mix in, stirring with a wooden spoon. The texture should slightly thick but not too thick. Keep stirring on medium heat for about 25 minutes, the mixture will thicken. Towards the end of your cooking time add the finely chopped smoked ham or prosciutto and stir through.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine Greek style yogurt and sour cream. Add the chillies or paprika and the herbs and mix through.

Mould you polenta with a small round sized bowl and place on plate. Cover with the yogurt mixture and serve.
