Tamina: Algerian Toasted Semolina & Honey Dessert

algerian tamina recipe | Halal Home Cooking
As-Salamu Alaikum / Peace be upon you 

Tamina is a very old Algerian recipe served usually to celebrate the birth of a new baby but can be made an enjoyed all year round.


It just so happens mashaAllah / as God willed, I gave birth little over a week ago to my third child, Zayd, he and I are both doing well Alhamdulillah/All praise and thanks be to God, I thought it would be a good idea to share this recipe on the blog.

I am no expert on breastfeeding however, I've certainly found that consuming Semolina either in this dessert form or bread such as Kesra increases milk supply, so for all you breastfeeding mothers who are struggling in those first few days after birth, you have more than 1 child to feed or you just want to increase your milk production for those growth spurts your little one goes through, This dessert is something I would recommend you try.

Tamina

Adapted from here

Ingredients


500 grams Coarse Semolina

250 grams Butter or Margarine

250 grams Runny Honey

2 tablespoons Orange Blossom Water

Almonds, Sugar decorations to decorate (optional)

Method


Add semolina to a large non stick frying pan / skillet and turn on the heat to high, constantly stir the semolina grains to avoid burning.

You want to toast the semolina until it's the same colour as sand it will take anyway between 10-20 minutes, once you smell the semolina toasting you may want to reduce the heat to medium/low so that you have more control i.e. that it doesn't burn and don't forget you can always pre-heat your frying pan which would reduce the time it takes to toast the semolina just I prefer or feel more at ease to bring the pan up to heat along with the semolina inside.

Once your semolina as toasted transfer into a large bowl and set aside.  
Melt the butter/vegan margarine in the frying pan.

Spoon into desired moulds, I used my silicone star cupcake cases but you can always be more traditional and serve it on small plates. Decorate with nuts, cake decorations as desired.
