Sweet Semolina Pudding with Ginger Topping

Sweet Semolina Pudding with Ginger Topping

Set out all the ingredients for this fast-paced recipe before you begin cooking. Ghee is clarified butter that has been simmered to remove the moisture and brown the milk solids. The result is a nutty, caramel flavor and aroma. To make ghee, simmer 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat until milk solids stop crackling and turn amber (about 5 minutes), stirring occasionally. Turn off heat, and let the residue settle to the bottom of the pan. Pour the clear butter fat into a small bowl. The pudding can be made a day ahead and stored, covered, in the refrigerator.

Preparation

To prepare pudding, combine first 3 ingredients in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; cook 1 1/2 minutes or until raisins puff, stirring constantly. Stir in semolina, and cook 3 minutes or until golden brown, stirring constantly. Add water, granulated sugar, saffron, and cardamom; cook 1 minute, stirring rapidly to avoid lumps.
