Light and sweet semolina dessert Posted by on Feb 19, 2017 in Culture

In a previous post, I presented the recipe for semolina dessert (الهريسة), but I found and tried another recipe which is easier and gives better results. Please find the ingredients and preparation method below:

شام الاصيل


2 cups of semolina (coarse)

1 table spoon of butter

1 cup of yoghurt

1 spoon of baking powder

½ spoon of bicarbonate

Nuts for decoration

Preparation Method:

Mix semolina with butter together very well

Add 1 cup of sugar and mix again

Add the yoghurt, baking powder and bicarbonate and mix well

When the mixture is ready, cover it and leave it for 4 hours.

While the dough is getting ready, make syrup with sugar, water and lemon juice.

Cover the inside of a baking tray with butter and put the dough inside.

You can cover the top of the dough with butter and nuts if you like.

Bake in a hot oven at 200 degrees until it is golden and ready.

When it is ready, add the syrup evenly to the dough. Make sure the syrup is hot and the dessert is hot as well. You can add some butter to the syrup for richer taste.

Leave it to set for a couple of hours before you eat.
