Cornbread is a popular item in the Middle East cooking, enjoyed by many people for its texture and aroma. Cornbread can be baked, fried or, rarely, steamed. Steamed cornbread is mushy, chewier and more like cornmeal pudding than what most consider to be traditional cornbread. Check out this oriental version of cornbread that you will absolutely love it.
