This is the basic recipe for this desert.  Nice part of this desert is it is extremely easy to make.  Not many ingredients but it can be dressed and shaped many different ways.  For example, you can add fruits like bananas or cookies in the middle or at the top or top it with jams.  For this time, I chose the basic recipe with chopped walnuts and cinnamon at the top.

4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup semolina
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon butter
vanilla essence 
decorate with cinnamon and chopped walnuts

  • Mix cold milk, sugar and semolina bring to boil
  • Reduce heat and cook until you see bubbles.  You will need to continually stir while cooking to make sure there are no lumps
  • Mix egg yolk with a bit of "pudding" to make sure egg mixes through properly without cooking immediately and add it to your pot
  • Add butter and vanilla and cook for another minute
  • Rinse your pan in cold water before pouring your batter into the pan
  • Leave in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving
  • You can make a day ahead.  After a couple of hours in the fridge make sure it is covered
  • Decorate with cinnamon or chocolate and walnuts before serving
