  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 6 1/4 cups semi-skimmed milk (1.5 liters)
  • 3 tablsepoons sesame oil
  • 10 1/2 ounces fine cornmeal (300 g)


Step 1: Polenta

Heat a dry skillet and toast the sesame seeds until golden. Drain on paper towels.

Add the sesame seeds and mix well. Line a baking sheet or dish with parchment paper. Pour the polenta over it and spread out evenly. Cover with another sheet of parchment paper and flatten with a rolling pin to even out the thickness on all sides. Refrigerate. The polenta is ready to be used.
