"All fans of Turkish cuisine, especially Turkish desserts, please raise your hands. In fact, raise both of them so we know for sure you`re not stealing from our plate."

Ingredients

  • semolina - 4/5 cup (200 g)
  • vegetable oil - 1/2 cup (125 g) or butter (margarine)
  • sugar - 4/5 cup (200 g)
  • water - 1 2/3 cups (400 ml)
  • almonds - 1/2 cup (120 g) sliced
  • cinnamon - 2/3 tsp (3 g)
measures

How to cook

Saute the semolina in the oil until golden. Pour a syrup over it, made from the sugar and water and stir until it boils. After 2-3 minutes, remove it from the heat, cover with a clean, thick cloth and close tightly with a lid.

Allow the semolina to sit for about 20 minutes, stir gently with a fork and cover it again.

Once cool, sprinkle with the cinnamon mixed with the almonds/walnuts that you've lightly toasted in a dry frying pan.
