Once it has boiled, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. 5. Add the milk and gently bring to another boil. NOTE: * I use a little metal strainer when pouring into a teapot. That way I don't get any pieces in the pot. * You can omit the sugar and milk while cooking and just have it on the side. Somali Sweets Shushumu Kac Kac
