Savory Semolina Muffins!


Oh my god! These savory muffins were to die for and so tasty and filling! semolina is one of the favorite breakfast item in India. Basically it is the endosperm of wheat and it is from the semolina that we get couscous! Couscous is rolled semolina! So if you don’t find semolina I think couscous can be easily substituted!


(  I used this recipe and it gave me four hearty muffins)

1/2 cup greek yogurt

3/4 cup semolina

3/4 cup carrots and peas

1/2 tsp turmeric


1 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp baking soda ( Very Important)

water to thin out!

For the tempering:

1 tbsp EVOO

Cumin seeds

Mustard seeds!

If you don’t have the seeds and don’t want to temper, then go ahead and add the oil to the batter!

Mix the first ingredients in a bowl and add water to thin it out so that you have a muffin batter texture!

Pour them into muffin pan and cook for about 30 minutes in a 350 F oven!

This was so good and crispy when it was out from the oven!!!
