Semolina Pudding

Semolina Pudding


  • 1 bag milk
  • ½ cup semolina flour
  • Water
  • 50ml Orange blossom water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • Crushed pistachios (optional)


  • Put a layer of water to cover the bottom of a pot
  • Empty the entire bag of milk
  • Add half cup of semolina flour and stir in briefly
  • Put over high heat stirring frequently or medium heat sitting until it starts to come to a boil
  • If consistency is still mostly liquid, add a bit more semolina
  • Be careful not to stir too much or semolina flour will clump
  • Turn heat down and stir so it doesn’t stick to the bottom
  • Add sugar
  • Leave on low heat stirring every ~5 minutes until it thickens
  • Once thick, drizzle 2-3 capfuls / 50ml of orange blossom water and stir in
  • Let sit 5 minutes and then spoon out into serving bowls or ramekins
  • Optionally top with crushed pistachios
  • Let cool and place in fridge to solidify and thicken
