Ingredients
  • Semolina:
  • 4 ounces olive oil
  • 4 ounces finely ground semolina
  • 4 ounces coarsely ground semolina
  • 2 ounces blanched and finely chopped almonds
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Syrup:
  • 12 ounces water
  • 10 ounces sugar
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
Directions
  • Heat oil in a medium pot on medium-high heat. Add the semolinas and almonds and stir constantly until the semolina is cooked and golden brown, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • In a small pot, mix the water, sugar, lemon half, cloves, and cinnamon. Place on high heat and bring to a boil. Turn heat to medium-high heat and simmer until sugar has dissolved, about 6 minutes. Pass through a sieve and discard lemon and spices.

  • Carefully, pour the syrup over the semolina and stir until well blended. Cover the pot and let sit to absorb, about 10 minutes.

  • Spoon the mixture into 3 1/2 to 4-ounce ramekins and let cool. Unmold onto a plate and sprinkle with cinnamon.
