Snails with wheat grains


½ kg snails
2 cups wheat grains
½ cup oil
5 tomatoes
1 onion
Salt, pepper



Wash the snails and boil them for a short time in salted water, so that they soften. After you have cleaned them, put the oil in a pan and sauté the snails together with the finely chopped onion. Now add the finely chopped tomatoes, salt, pepper and 2 cups of water. Lower the heat and leave the snails to cook. When ready, remove them from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the wheat grains to the sauce, add 6 cups of water (ratio of wheat/water = 3/1) and allow it to cook over a low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. When the wheat has absorbed the water and swollen (after about 15 minutes) turn off the heat and add the snails to the pan. Mix well together and the food is ready to serve.
