Journey to India part IV – Sogee

I think endings are always better when they are sweet. So the end of our journey is dessert, Sogee:


Originally when I was planning this meal I didn’t plan for there to be dessert until TheHusband said “Are you going to make that sweet stuff your boss made the other day”. He loved the stuff, eating handful after handful of it  (At my boss’s house they eat with their hands, they offered us cutlery, we graciously and excitedly declined) 

So to please my loving husband (there are very few foods he will specifically ask for) and also because he got the idea in my head I made sogee as the end to them meal. When I served it the first comment I got was “Where is the honey and milk” and to be honest it did look a little like porridge but once they tasted it, no more sarcastic comments, no more smart ass comments, no more comments really…they were too busy eating.

What you need:


2 cups Semolina
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1 tbs butter/ghee (more if you want it richer)
1/2l water
1/2l milk (or cream if you really like it rich)
1 dishing spoon sugar (to taste)

What to do:

Roast semolina, cinnemon stick and almonds in a hot pan till golden then add butter, roast a little more then take off the heat
Allow to cool. 
In a seperate bowl mix the water and milk and the sugar then add that to the cooled mixture and return to the heat until warm and thick.
