DIRECTIONS

  • Bring the milk to the boil over low heat.
  • Add semolina while whisking.
  • Heat while stirring until cooked (you should have a pudding-like mass that doesn't stick to the pan).
  • Stir in sugar, egg yolks, 2 tbsp butter (the mass should now become fluid again).
  • Add orange blossom water to taste (be careful, this can easily overpower other tastes).
  • Spread on a greased tray (about 1 inch thick), allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Cover and refrigerate until firm.
  • Beat egg.
  • Heat olive oil and butter over medium-low heat.
  • Form semolina mixture into small balls, coat in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs.
  • Cook in oil/butter mixture until golden brown.
  • Serve warm, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.
