Roasting the corn first, changes the color, and gives it a deeper and heartier flavor, favored by many:
In a frying pan, toast the cornmeal over moderately high heat, stirring frequently, to prevent burning. After 3-5 minutes you will see the color change. The darker you roast it, the deeper the taste. You have to find out yourself, how long to roast it exactly to the taste you desire.
