[Recipe] Irmik Helvasi – Turkish semolina dessert

I got this recipe from the book „Travel hunger“ taken over, which I reviewed last week.

How it is used by the Turkish kitchen, are the desserts very sweet. And so it is also with the Irmik Helvasi. It is a very delicious, sweet semolina dessert. The Turkish wheat flour can be found in the Turkish deli named Irmik.
