Semolina Halva

This is an amazingly delicious dessert, and husband-proof to boot :). Recipe from my mom's notebook.


1/2 cup oil
1 cup semolina
1 cup sugar
3 cups water
raisins, nuts to taste


Stir sugar into cold water until sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
In a saucepan heat oil.
Sautee semolina in oil, stirring constantly. You want the semolina to turn golden, but not brown.
Start adding the sugar syrup little by little. Stir until incorporated.
Once the whole syrup has been incorporated, remove from heat.
Add walnuts, raisins, dried apricots or whatever else you feel like.
Stir well, then put warm mixture into a suitable dish (muffin pans or baking pan).
Let it cool.
Then flip on a plate...
Cut in slices...
Sprinkle with cinnamon...
And enjoy :)
