It can be made using various cracked cereals such as Sinde (wheat), Bekolo (corn), or Ajja (oats); all of which can easily be found in a nearby grocery store. Here is a simple recipe that you can follow to make Kinche at home.
Ingredients Required to Make Kinche
- 1 cup of cracked wheat
- 1 cup of milk
