Halvas (semolina pudding)

Nuvita Biscuits


  • 1 tea cup of olive oil
  • 1 tea cup of fine semolina
  • 1 tea cup of coarse semolina
  • 2 1/2 tea cups of sugar
  • 4 tea cups of water
  • 1/2 tea cup of black currents
  • 1/2 tea cup of roasted almonds
  • a piece of lemon zest
  • a piece of orange zest
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon powder


Place the water, sugar, cinnamon stick, zests of orange and lemon in a casserole type pan and simmer until the sugar melts. Warm the olive oil in a deep casserole over medium heat and brown the semolina, stirring with a wooden spoon, for 6 minutes until it turns dark brown. Add the cinnamon powder, raisins and almonds, stir and remove from heat. Use a ladle to pour, carefully, a little at a time, the syrup over the semolina mixture. Be careful because the mixture is very hot and bubbly. Put back to heat and stir until the mixture comes easily off the sides of the casserole. Empty the mixture in a sponge cake mould and leave to cool completely. Turn it out on a large serving plate and sprinkle with cinnamon. Cut in slices and serve.

    I want to know conditions, safety precautions, health issues they get and any stories about people owning them that went good or bad.

    Thank you. I would not get one, because I’d be afraid. I have a small dog, but she is not tea cup size.
    All these answers are true and heart breaking.

    I made homemade ravioli last night and the recipe I used called for half semolina flour (wheat durum) and half all-purpose flour. I’ve been seeing a lot of other recipes out there for ravioli dough that only call for all-purpose flour, are these recipes good?
