Turkish people use semolina for a couple desserts and this is one of them. It might be so sweety for people who don’t like desserts with syrup, but you can adjust it’s sugar level for your needs and habits. It’ll be easy to make it at your home since the ingredients are easy to find. But if you can not find them, please write to me Here, we can start with photos now:
A kneading bowl
An oven tray
A medium sized pot
A few small bowls
Add the eggs, melted margarine, oil, water, salt and granulated sugar into the mixing bowl and mix. Meanwhile add the flour little by little.
Knead the dough until it is soft like earlob. Then set aside for 10-15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 175 °C (347 °F).
Take pieces from the dough that fit in your palm and roll them.
Spread the dough you rolled and press on the middle of it and try to make a shape just like in the photo above.
Take pieces by using a kinfe just like in the photo again. Dip these pieces into the semolina (dip only one side of them) and put equally onto the oven tray with greased paper on it.
Bake until their top turn pink. Meanwhile prepare the syrup.
To prepare the syrup, whisk the boiled warm water with sugar in a pot until the sugar grains melt completely.
When the baking is completed, set aside for a minute. Then pour the syrup onto the semolina slices equally.
Set aside for 3-4 hours until desserts drain the syrup completely.
