It is similar to polenta or cornmeal in its grain and in its cooked consistency.
In Poland, people cook up semolina like porridge and give it to their children for breakfast.
I love it. My mum used to make it for me all the time when I was a kid. I loved it the most when she forgot to stir it and it went lumpy. Yum.
1/3 cup semolina
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
Put the semolina, milk, water, brown sugar and salt in a small saucepan.
Cook over a medium heat, stirring, until it is as thick as you want it. This usually takes about 3-5 minutes.
Serve in a bowl or mug with a little milk.
Makes one large serving or two small ones.
You can microwave any leftovers the next day to heat it up, then and add some milk and enjoy.
