Remove the pan from the heat, close it tightly with a lid and set for an hour and a half to pre-empt.


The onions brush, cut into small cubes and pasture in vegetable oil. Add wheat flour, sautéed onion, ground pepper, salt and remaining vegetable oil to the steep buckwheat porridge. Stir everything thoroughly.
