Semolina Dessert (Irmik Helvası)

Ingredients

Main:
125 milliliters unsalted butter
2 tablespoons pine nuts
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup milk

Preparation

1
Cook the main ingredients on medium-low heat until golden brown in a large pot, constantly stirring. In another pot, mix the syrup ingredients until boiled. Pour the syrup very slowly into the pot with the semolina while stirring with a long wooden spoon. The mixture will be bubbly and will spit so be careful. Stir until the mixture leaves sides of the pot (it will become doughy), this shouldn't take more than a couple minutes.

Then place away from heat with the lid on, wait for 5 minutes and put in a bowl, levelled. When cooled, put it on a flat plate upside down. Serve in slices. You can put some chocolate sauce on top, if you like.
