Start by making the syrup: boil the water with the sugar.
Next, braise the semolina in the oil to a light brown, pour the syrup over it while still on the stove.
Add the vanilla and raisins and continue stirring until thickened.
Remove from the stove, pour the mixture into a suitable tray. If you'd like it to be thicker, pour it into a smaller tray. Each to their own.
Once cooled, cut it into pieces and sprinkle with coconut flakes.
