-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 onion -- finely chopped

"A simpler version of this recipe from a Jamaican friend goes like this:
Fry an onion with a likkle water and trow de kahnmeal of 1 pownd. Turn and
turn adding wata, 1 pint and a likkle."

"This versatile preparation is similar to Italian polenta. It can be eaten
on its own or it pairs nicely with any well-sauced dish. If you're lucky
enough to have leftovers, slice and fry it as a tasty side for your morning
