Corn has a high nutritional content and efficacy for health, including substances for a healthy digestive system, preventing anemia, serving as a source of energy, lowering LDL cholesterol, aiding in weight gain, and preventing diabetes and hypertension.

It is very simple to make this cheese grits recipe. Raw corn should be grated or blended. Why is it necessary to be raw? When raw corn is grated, it releases more corn starch than when ripe corn is grated, resulting in a less thick product.

Mix in cornstarch or maizena

Cornstarch, also known as Maizena, is a starch derived from the endosperm of corn kernels. Cornstarch is a popular food ingredient that is commonly used as a thickener in soups and sauces, as well as in the production of corn syrup and other sweeteners.

If your grits aren’t thick enough, simply add more cornstarch. You can also add coconut milk or liquid milk to make it slightly more savory. Don’t forget to add pandan leaves and salt to enhance the flavor.
