How to Make Konya-Style Semolina Dessert?

Konya-style semolina dessert is a traditional Turkish dessert that is made with semolina, milk, sugar and butter. It is often flavored with vanilla, cinnamon, or citrus zest. The dessert is typically baked in a pan until it is golden brown and then served warm or cold.

To make a Konya-style semolina dessert, you will need the following ingredients:


1 cup of ghee or butter

2 tablespoons of pine nuts

2 cups of semolina

2 cups of sugar

2 cups of milk


Melt the butter in a saucepan and add peanuts and semolina, cook over low heat while stirring with a wooden spoon until the semolina and peanuts turn yellow. 

Put sugar and milk in another saucepan, cook over medium heat and stir until the sugar melts.

Add the boiled milk with sugar to the semolina that has reached consistency, close the lid of the pot and cook over low heat.

When the dessert soaks the water stir again. Then put a clean sheet over the pot close the lid and let it rest.

Stir the cooked dessert with a wooden spoon to make it a grainy.

Some additional tips for making Konya-style semolina dessert:

For a richer flavor, use whole milk instead of skim milk.

To make the dessert more flavorful, you can add a pinch of salt or a teaspoon of almond extract to the batter.

If you want a crispier dessert, bake it for a few minutes longer.

Konya-style semolina dessert can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
