  • ¼ cup light cooking oil
  • 1 cup semolina
  • ¼ cup sugar add more if you like it really sweet
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoon thinly sliced almonds for garnish


  • Heat oil in a non-stick pan and fry the semolina till it starts to lightly brown. Be careful to stir often, so as not to let it burn.
  • Add in sugar and cardamom powder, and fry for a few minutes till the sugar starts to melt.
  • Slowly pour in the water and continue to stir till all the water dries up and starts to form a thicker consistency.
  • Toss in sliced almonds, and serve warm.
