This is a popular Indian dessert recipe that I got from my Indian coworker's wife. It is VERY sweet, so if you don't like overly sweet desserts, you might want to adjust the semolina/sugar ratio accordingly.

  • Heat a small amount of the ghee in a separate skillet over medium heat. Add the cashews, and cook until lightly toasted, about 10 minutes. Add the cashews to the semolina along with the remaining ghee. Gradually stir hot milk into the semolina until it is thick enough to pack into a ball. Remove from heat, and form palm-sized balls. Let cool and serve.

I love Middle Eastern sweets as they're what I grew up on but I wasn't big on this dessert. Extremely sweet with no other flavors....a kind of sticky sugary mess. Read More
