About Semolina Dessert:

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:
