Hello everyone, how are you today? I hope you had a good day. I am here with an article that will make your day even more beautiful, or rather sweeten it.
Yes, today I would like to give you the recipe of Semolina dessert, which is one of the indispensable desserts of Turkish cuisine. Besides being a very delicious dessert, this is a very easy dessert to make. I would also like to point out that this dessert is also a traditional dessert made in the Ottoman palace cuisine in the past.
Before proceeding with the preparation of the dessert, let's organize the list of necessary ingredients.
3 tablespoons of butter
1.5 large glasses of milk
1.5 large glasses of semolina
½ cup of pine nuts
1.5 large glasses of water
1.5 large glasses of granulated sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
Before we move on to making the dessert, we first need to prepare the sauce. We put milk, water and sugar in a saucepan and mix until it boils on the stove. This mixture will continue to boil over low heat. No need to mix anymore.
Now, after melting 3 tablespoons of butter in a slightly deep pan, we roast the pine nuts thoroughly. We need to roast the pine nuts until they turn brown, but be careful not to burn them. Keep an eye on them when roasting pine nuts, because there is a possibility that they will suddenly burn.
After our pine nuts are browned, we add 1.5 large glasses of semolina to the pan and fry for 20 minutes. There are 2 points that we should pay attention to while roasting the semolina. The first point is that we will do this process on low heat. The second point is that we need to stir constantly. Just like pine nuts, semolina should not burn. Therefore, we fry it on low heat and stir constantly. Don't forget this.
After roasting our semolina well, we slowly pour the sauce we prepared before over the semolina and pine nut mixture in the pan. As soon as we pour the sauce, the semolina in the pan will start to bubble, do not be afraid. Now, we've brought together almost all the elements of dessert. We need to cook the mixture in the pan for another 10 minutes on low heat. Of course, we still have to stir constantly. If we don't mix it, it may burn and stick to the bottom of the pan.
After the last cooking process for 10 minutes, we can turn off the bottom of the stove. Now we will close a lid on the rim of the pan and let the semolina halva brew for a while. The semolina halva, which is brewed for 10-15 minutes, is ready to be served. This dessert is not too cold or too hot, it is actually a dessert that is eaten lukewarm.
After putting the semolina halva in the pan in a bowl, we should turn it upside down on the serving plate so that it comes out in the form of a mold. Serving it this way makes it look more pleasant. You can pour some cinnamon on the semolina halva that comes out as a mold on the plate. As I mentioned earlier, cinnamon will not only give you a pleasant aroma but also prevent your blood sugar from rising quickly.
Semolina halva is a dessert that is optionally consumed with ice cream. I love semolina halva with warm and ice cream. In fact, my favorite dessert is semolina halva. don't tell anyone. Let this be a secret between us
Finally, semolina halva is a type of dessert served at Turkish wedding meals. I had the opportunity to eat this dessert at wedding dinners many times.
I hope you try to make semolina halvah and you like the taste. Stay with love…
