Cicvara, a specific type of porridge, once used to be a very popular dish and it is often mentioned as a particular delicacy. It is still made today on special occasions.
It is usually prepared with barley, com, or wheat flour. It is prepared by melting a chunk of lard or butter in a pan, preferably a copper one, and adding the flour, and salt, and water. The mixture is then cooked well, or rather, fried well.
Possible special extra ingredients could be cheese, soft cheese, cream, or even eggs.
Cicvara, a rather rich dish with high-fat content, was well suited for the periods when there was difficult farm work to be done.

How did you remembered this dish? It’s so old, that even I could barely remember what where you saying, even though I’m from Serbia! My grandmother prepared this dish when I was a kid, and I have the greatest memories about that time. Thank you for reminding me about that time!
