Home / Videos / Layali Lubnan/Lebanese Nights (Semolina Pudding)
A Middle Eastern dessert most popular in Levantine Countries like Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and Iraq. The name translates to Lebanese Nights and is a mildly sweet dessert with semolina and cream layers with a bed of pistachio slivers and usually served with the syrup. Hence the syrup can be adjusted to one's own choice and this is a perfect dessert for people with Diabetis and they can enjoy it without the syrup. Delicate, melt in mouth and scrumptious dessert is loved by Arabs and can be whipped up very easily. A perfect one to complete your weekend meals. Orange blossom water and rose water are generally added but can be skipped totally and can be substituted with vanilla essence instead. There are umpteen number of variations for this lovely dessert but the most basic one is with semolina and cream. I have added pistachios not only on top but also in between the 2 layers for an added crunch. Enjoy!
