MANCA BALANKA. Do it like this: wash the rice, crush it in a copper mortar. Then cook capon breasts, then slice it a bit and add sugar. Take the fat parts of beef into an iron pot, boil milk in a tin pot, pass through a strainer it into the tin pot, while the milk is boiling put the rice into it with the capon, add some sugar, stir it. Boil it well. You can make other dishes, too, slice some breads, mix it with flour, melt some water and fry it, serve it once fried.
