Luscious Indian Cream of Wheat- A Delicious Breakfast Treat

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Having no idea how I would prepare cream of wheat, I put it in my cart.  The Excellent Source of Iron, Excellent Source of Calcium, Low fat, Sugar Free, Good Source of Fiber label caught my attention.  So I decided to prepare this making a variation of Indian Rice Pudding and it came out really good- creamy and fragrant, not too sweet.

It’s a simple and elegant filling hot breakfast, flavored with Indian spices and pistachio nuts. And it’s so easy to put together.

Wrap yourself in love with this comfort food.

2 servings



1/3 cup whole grain of Cream of Wheat

2 cups Coconut Milk

1 tbsp. rose water

½ cup + 1 tbsp. pistachios  (finely chopped)

½ tsp.  cardamom (powder)

3 tablespoons of maple syrup, brown sugar or 3 packets of Stevia

1 tsp. of coconut oil *optional



1. In saucepan, bring coconut milk to a boil, watching it carefully to prevent it from boiling over.

 2. Gradually add whole grain cream of wheat, rosewater, ½ cup of pistachios, cardamom and sugar stirring constantly with wire whisk until well blended. Whisk without stopping so that no lumps form.

3. Reduce heat to Low; drizzle the coconut oil (if using) and simmer, uncovered for 3 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently.

4. Transfer to serving bowls, and garnish with remaining pistachios before serving.

    Voted. Sounds wonderful! What is cream of wheat exactly? Is it some part of the usual wheat grain, that has been separated in some way? Like tofu from soy beans, for example.

      Cream of Wheat is a brand of farina: a porridge-type breakfast food made from wheat semolina. It is similar in texture to grits, but made with ground wheat kernels instead of ground corn.

    I'm definitely going to try this. Thank you for sharing. Coconut milk in can or box? One is thicker than the other that's why I'm asking which is best.
