The name of this dessert has an interesting story. A Turkish men came to home from a long military service without prior notice to his wife. His wife decided to make a dessert for him and she made up something with whatever she has at home. Then she serve to his husband and asked if he found the dessert nice. So, her question became the name of dessert she made up.  I do not know if the story is real or not, but the one thing I know that it is a delicious dessert.


  • 1 cup of semolina
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of grated fresh mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (5/8 stick)


Take a pan add butter and heat it. After butter melts add semolina and cook it until it become brown. In a medium pot put water, sugar and milk and boil.

After it boils add it to semolina mixture and cook slowly by adding grated mozzarella. When mozzarella melts you can take it from the heat.

You can serve it with ice cream or Turkish clotted cream. To make Turkish clotted cream put 2 cups of half half cream in a glass pan, add a little whole milk. Put boiling water in a pot and place glass pan on the pot. Simmer it about 8-10 hours. Take it from the heat and wait until it gets cold and put it in the fridge. It should be ready next day. Enjoy!
