    Cookgirl's Note:

    Syrian Semolina Pudding. I am intrigued by the use of semolina for dessert (see Grießbrei (German Semolina Pudding) for example) and until fairly recently have only used it for bread baking. I found this recipe in the cookbook 'Recipes for an Arabian Night' by David Scott. Good for breakfast or dessert!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • 1/2 cup semolina (I used semolina flour)
    • 2/3 cup sugar (which I reduced to 1/4 cup)
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 cup milk (I always use whole milk)
    • 1/2 teaspoon rose water (add only 1/4 teaspoon at first then add more, to taste)

    Garnish

    • ground cinnamon
    • toasted sliced almonds
    • fresh rose petals, thinly sliced (optional) or dried rose petals, crushed (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Melt the butter in a heavy pan. Lightly brown the semolina on LOW heat for 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, combine the sugar, water and milk in another pan and bring *almost* to a boil.
    3. 3
      Once the semolina is done, gently stir in the sugar/milk mixture. Use a whisk to break up any lumps. Cook to desired consistency. For me, this step only took about 2 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add a little bit of milk or water. Stir in the rosewater.
    4. 4
      Spoon the semolina pudding into individual dessert cups and set aside to cool slightly. Cover and chill.
    5. 5
      Note: for breakfast I ate this hot right out of the pan.
    6. 6
      Just before serving, sprinkle the top of the pudding with ground cinnamon and garnish with the sliced almonds (and rose petals if using).

      I really enjoyed this for this morning's breakfast. I took Cookgirl's lead and lowered the sweetening (I used Splenda) by about the same amount she did although I didn't measure. For the milk I used vanilla almond milk. It made a lovely and welcome change of pace that tasted very good indeed and is quick and east to make.
