  • Semolina – 5 TBSP
  • Sugar – 8 TBSP
  • Butter – 4 TBSP
  • Milk – 2 Cups
  • Vanilla extract – 1 tsp
To make Walnut Garnish –
  • Walnuts – 10 large piece
  • Granulated sugar – 2 tsp
  1. In a sauce pan, melt the butter.
  2. Add the milk and sugar and mix. Let the milk mixture come to a gentle boil in low to medium flame.
  3. Now slowly add the measured semolina. Reduce the heat and keep stirring the mixture until it thickens.
  4. This takes about 3 to 5 minutes. When the pudding is almost thick, turn off the flame and stir in the vanilla.
  5. Carefully pour the pudding into individual serving dish (if using) or a casserole.

  6. Chill it for at least 30 minutes or until the pudding sets.
  7. To make the Walnut Garnish – In the meantime, slightly roast the walnuts in a pan. Sprinkle the suagr evenly over the walnuts and shake it to coat. The sugar will dissolve in the heat and will coat the walnuts. Now turn off the flame and let the walnuts cool in the same pan. It will become crunchy when cool. Evenly chop the walnuts and use it as garnish.
  8. To serve – Once the pudding has set, you could invert it on a serving plate and garnish with sugared walnut. If not just serve as is in the individual bowls.
