    Kutia is served as a first dish for Christmas Eve/ Sviata Vechera. Its three main ingredients are whole wheat kernels, poppy seeds, and honey. Note: This dish can be prepared several days ahead of time for flavour to develop. It keeps very well in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or so. This how I have made mine, there are many other variations.


    • 1 cup whole wheat kernels
    • 1/2 cup poppy seeds
    • 1/2 - 1 cup honey


    1. Wash wheat in cold water and soak overnight in water to cover.
    2. The next day, bring the water to a boil then simmer for 4 to 5 hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Add more water if needed. The wheat is ready when the kernels burst open and the fluid is thick and creamy.
    3. Add the poppy seed and let simmer for awhile.
    4. Add honey to taste.
