A very old-time, traditional breakfast, couche couche is the Cajun version of fried cornmeal mush.

Heat the oil in a heavy pot or preferable a cast iron dutch oven.

Mix the dry ingredients, then add the milk and water. Pour the batter into the hot oil, and allow a crust to form on the bottom before stirring. Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally; cook for about 15 minutes.

Serve in bowls with milk and sugar, like a hot cereal.

Serves 4.
