Recipe by GORGO
"A moist, delicious Greek treat. You can alter the sugar depending on your sweet tooth. When adding the milk to the semolina don't get to close, the steam may burn you. Oh, and the smell is awful but the result is delicious. Sprinkle with cinnamon and decorate with walnuts or slivered almonds."

This was delicious!! And pretty healthy if you cut down on the butter. I added about 2 tablespoons of butter and it was still delicious. I also mixed in slivered almonds and raisins. Yummy!!! I will also cut down th sugar by 1/4th cup next time.
the recipe was way to sweet. the desert itself was gorgous but I only used 2 tbs of butter which worked fine and i put 1/4 less of sugar in which was still way to sweet. 3/4 cup rather than 1 & 1/2 cups would have been plenty. you can always add more after. i also put more liquid in, not sure how much though i just added a little at a time untill it was right.
My mom used to make this for us for breakfast when we were young. When I make it, I use half the stated amount of sugar and butter and sometimes add vanilla extract. I also use regular semolina, not semolina flour. Delicious!
Delicious recipe. And I didn't notice any awful smell, as the description warned. I substituted coconut milk for the water and cut down a bit on the sugar to give this recipe a Southeast Asian twist.
I've never tried this dessert before, so perhaps I'm not accustomed to the graniness of the semolina, but overall, this was good! The recipe was simply and quickly made from items on hand (semolina previously bought from arab market), and I only made two adjustments: 1 c. sugar (still a bit sweet), and dusted with powdered cinnamon and ground almonds.
Great! No bad smell as the recipe indicates. Reducced the butter to 1/4 cup. Added less sugar also 3/4 cup. Did not add any cinnamon. Just what I was looking for. Very tasty - will make again!
better than my childhood years in greece where they make it using olive oil (!)--that's too heavy for me today.
but the butter makes it heavenly! even though i used half of it and half the sugar called for.
also i sprinkled in a little black & white sesame seeds for color contrasts.
thx very much, nikita.
happy new year!
This reminded me of Cream of Wheat (which i love) but better. I served it with some plain yogurt. yummm
