- A few cloves
- 1 small cinnamon stick
- 450 ml water
- 1 tablespoon flaked almonds
- 1 tablespoon orange flower water or rosewater
- 1 tablespoon pistachio nuts, finely chopped
- Melt the butter in a pan and fry the semolina until it starts to turn golden.
- Stir in the sugar, spices and the water.
- Cook over a low heat until the mixture thickens.
- Add the almonds and rosewater and cook until it is almost solid.

Can be eaten hot or cold, with thick yogurt.
I would recommend using a non-stick saucepan when making this.
