Semolina Halva

Method

Heat the ghee or butter in a saucepan and add the semolina, toast over medium heat for 3–5 minutes, or until golden brown, stirring constantly. Add the milk and 3 tablespoons of sugar, cover with a lid and cook over low heat for 2 minutes. The semolina will double in size and turn fluffy.

In a bowl, dissolve the remaining sugar in the cream using a spoon and set aside.

Serve the semolina halva on a plate, drizzle with cream, scatter over blueberries and garnish with basil.
