Cooking Kutia funeral:

Step 1: Prepare Raisins

According to Orthodox customs, the fruits that are added to kutya are associated with the paradise fruits that God gave to all mankind. You can add not only raisins to this dish, but also dried fruits, such as dried apricots, prunes, and also poppy seeds, if desired. So, put the raisins in a small pan, fill it with plain water and leave for 20-30 minutes. After washing it under running water. Pour into a pan with dried fruit 200 milliliters purified water and boil it over medium heat 5 minutes. If you use dried apricots or prunes, after cooking, cut them on a cutting board with a knife into small pieces.

Step 2: prepare the sweet ingredient.

In history, memorial dinners symbolize the meeting of the disciples of Christ, who were glad of the resurrection of their mentor and waited each time at the table for his appearance. Therefore, in early Christian societies, holding joint meals, they expressed love for each other and honored the dead, telling stories about them and recalling pleasant moments in their lives. And when the Risen Christ appeared to his disciples, he ate honey. Therefore, since ancient times, honey is put on a funeral dinner or added to other dishes so that the deceased can be filled with heavenly sweetness. In order for this ingredient to soak well into rice and make kutia sweet, you need to melt it a little. So, put the honey in a small saucepan with a spoon and, stirring constantly, heat it over medium heat literally 1-2 minutes. We control the time ourselves, as honey can be candied, and because of this, we will have to tinker with it a little longer. Instead of honey in kutya, you can add another sweet component - sugar. To do this, simply dissolve it in a small amount of hot water, using a regular cup and a tablespoon.

Step 3: prepare candied fruits.

Using a knife, chop the candied fruit on the cutting board to the size that you like best. This ingredient is added to many dishes, such as Easter cake. After all, candied fruit is a fruit boiled in syrup with a dense consistency. They are very sweet and serve as an excellent substitute for sweets. Therefore, when adding candied fruit to kutya, carefully with sugar, so that the dish does not overwhelm.

Step 4: Cooking Kutia.

First, soak the rice in a medium-sized saucepan with plain water for 1-2 hours. After - we drain the water and fill the rice with already purified water. In proportions per 100 grams of cereal, 400 milliliters of water is needed. As for rice, you can take either round-grain or long-grain. We put the pan with grits on the stove, bring to a boil and after reduce fire to a minimum. In the process of cooking rice is not mixed with a spoon. Do not worry, porridge will not burn. On a small fire, this ingredient will “breathe”, evaporating water slowly. From time to time we check fig. When there is practically no water left in the pan and the cereal grains become soft, we add raisins or other dried fruits, chopped candied fruits, and pour honey or sugar water. Mix well with a spoon and keep on fire another 1-2 minutes.

Step 5: serve the funeral meal.

We shift the finished kutia from the pan with a spoon into a deep plate or bowl. We smooth the surface of the dish with a spoon and, if desired, decorate with raisins and candied fruits. And now we cover with a lid from the pan, so that kutia will slowly cool down. According to Orthodox traditions, after they have consecrated kuta, they say a prayer at the table and begin a funeral feast with a spoon of this sweet dish. From this amount of ingredients, kutia is prepared for 25-30 people. Enjoy your meal!
