  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2.5 cups Milk at room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup semolina
  • 2 Tsp butter
  • 2 Tsp honey or any other sweetener to taste


  • Add water in a small saucepan, add the cinamon stick and bring to a boil. Add the milk to bring down the temperature of the water then add the semolina slowly while stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming.
  • Simmer gently and stir frequently to prevent the porridge until the semolina becomes tender with a porridge consistency.
  • Stir in the butter and simmer until the porridge reaches your desired consistency.
  • Serve and top with some fruits, then drizzle some honey over it or add any other sweetener.



  • Don’t bring the water to a boil after adding the milk. The lowered temperature of the liquid will allow the semolina to dissolve well. If the liquid is brought to a boil, the semolina might curdle up immediately and become lumpy.
