1″ Cinnamon piece

2 pods of cardamom slightly bruised

1 cup of water (set aside another 1/2 cup of water to add, in case the semolina porridge is too thick)

1/3 cup of sugar (reduce or increase as per your need, I have added the least amount of sugar here but you CAN increase it to 1/2 a cup but please make sure the porridge is not too sweet).

1/2 cup of thick coconut milk or 1 cup of fresh milk (use the coconut milk for a dairy-free option)

Salt to season

To garnish

1 tablespoon of ghee (substitute with butter)

A handful of cashews (7-10)

1/3 cup of raisins (optional, do not use if you have adults or kids who hate raisins)

 

Method

Place a small frying pan over low fire, add ghee(1 tbs, substitute with butter), gently fry the cashews and raisins for a few minutes and set aside to garnish.

 

Place a medium-sized pan over the stove and add semolina(1 and 1/2 cup), cinnamon(1″piece), cardamom(2 slightly bruised), sugar(increase or decrease as per your need), add water(1 cup)to the pan.

 

Over low fire, bring the semolina porridge to heat while continuously stirring. The stirring should continue as you don’t want any lumps forming. Stir for 5 minutes.

 

Once the porridge is slightly thick(continue stirring), pour in the coconut milk or fresh milk and stir, letting it thicken(2 minutes over low heat).

 

Taste and season with salt or adjust sweetness.

 

Once you’ve made the semolina porridge, add the cashews, raisins and a little bit of ghee(or butter) to give it extra flavor.

Add the smoothed porridge to the pan and keep it warm to add the cashews and raisins.
