Semolina pudding

Semolina pudding

Introduction:

The heart of this delectable pudding lies in the humble ingredient known as bajra rava, also called semolina. This grain, derived from the pearl millet plant, is a staple in many Indian households, lending its nutty flavour and nutritional profile to a variety of dishes. In semolina pudding, bajra rava takes centre stage, absorbing the rich flavours of milk and sugar while retaining its delicate texture.

A Culinary Journey: Preparing Semolina Pudding

Embark on a culinary adventure as we guide you through the preparation of this irresistible pudding. With simple steps and accessible ingredients, you can create a masterpiece that will tantalise your taste buds.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup bajra rava (semolina)
  • 3 cups milk (full-fat for a richer flavour)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional)

Equipment:

  • Medium saucepan
  • Whisk
  • Serving bowls

Preparation:

  1. Warm the Milk: Pour the milk into a medium saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until it just begins to simmer.
  2. Incorporate Semolina: Slowly add the bajra rava to the simmering milk, whisking continuously to prevent lumps from forming.
  3. Simmer and Sweeten: Continue whisking as the mixture thickens, which may take around 5-7 minutes. Once the pudding thickens to your desired consistency, remove it from the heat.
  4. Enhance the Flavours: Stir in the sugar, vanilla extract, and cardamom (if using). For a richer flavour, melt the butter and add it to the pudding, whisking until it is fully incorporated.
  5. Rest and Serve: Cover the pudding with a lid and let it rest for 5-10 minutes to allow the flavours to meld.
  6. A Touch of Presentation: Garnish the pudding with fresh fruit, nuts, or a drizzle of honey before serving.

Tips for Success:

  • Consistency is Key: The thickness of the pudding can be adjusted by adding more milk or cooking for a shorter or longer duration.
  • Sweetness to Your Taste: Adjust the amount of sugar to your liking. If you prefer a less sweet pudding, reduce the sugar or omit it altogether.
  • Flavourful Variations: Get creative with your flavourings by adding chopped nuts, raisins, or spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom.
