I'll be posting few of my Facebook recipes on here for everyone that's not on Facebook. This is one of the first recipes I put up on Facebook and I really like basbousa hope you guys try the recipe and like it too In'sha Allah.
1 cup coarse semolina
1 cup plain yogurt
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup whole almonds
4 tbsp butter
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven 180c
In a bowl melt butter(done it in the microwave for 20 secs)
To the butter add 1/2 cup sugar and stir in till dissolved.
Whisk an egg and mix in. (Optional but I like adding the egg)
Mix in the yogurt.
Add in the semolina and mix.
Add in the desiccated coconut and mix.
Last add the baking powder and mix.
If the batter looks too thick can add few drops of water to make it more smooth.
Grease baking tray or dish and pour the batter.
Using a knife make diamond shapes cutting through the batter and place an almond on each diamond shape.
Place the tray in the oven and bake for 30 mins. Keep it bit longer if you like it more darker in colour.
Meantime make a syrup:
Boil 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar and 1 tsp rose water to make a runny syrup.
Once the basbousa is baked, get out the oven, cut through the faint diamond shape lines again and pour the syrup all over and let it sit for 1/2 hour before taking out the tray and serving. #basbousa #mediterraneandessert #iftar #ramadan2017 #myrecipe #ramadanrecipes_honufa
