    I came across this word grișat in Romanian. I do not know what it means, and the only place it comes up on the internet is on dexonline.ro, but there is no definition, just the evidence that it is indeed a word. Could someone help me out?

    Thanks.

    It's used to describe a kind of milled corn, corser than the regular corn flour. I dont't recall seen it used elsewhere. Probably derived from "griș", milled/ground wheat corser than flour.

    Later,

    mălai grișat also implies that the corn flour is pre/half cooked, so it's faster to cook it (into mămăligă, for example, yum! :) )
