About this recipe: This is an Indian semolina pudding. My mum taught me how to make it, before I was married, but I had never made it on my own until my son started asking for teats after dinner. I made it for him once and he loved it, so now he always helps me to make - and eat - it!

Recipe and instructions excellent . Being a diabetic I exchanged the sugar for 4 x heaped tbsp of granulated sweetener and this was just right for my taste. Again thanks for sharing excellent recipe. - 09 Jan 2014
