Masfouf is a desert snack traditionally served after the fast is broken on Ramadhan evenings. It is, in fact, remarkably like the various soojee (cream of wheat semolina) preparations encountered in Kashmir and other parts of India. The techniques of assembling are different, but the idea and ingredients are the same. 1. Mix the semolina and hot water in a bowl. Put it into the top (kesskess) of a couscousier or a Chinese-style steamer and steam, covered, over hot water for 10 minutes. 2. Remove the semolina to a bowl and stir in 4 tablespoons of the butter. Mix and toss to separate the grains. Return the semolina to the steamer and steam, covered, for 20 minutes. The semolina will expand and will be cooked through. 3. Soak the raisins in hot water for 5 minutes and drain. Remove the semolina the second time, stir in the balance of the butter, 4 tablespoons, and turn the semolina out on a serving dish. Add the raisins, almonds, pine nuts and mix and toss together. Set aside a few raisins and nuts to decorate the top of the Masfouf. Sprinkle the Masfouf with the sugar and decorate with the raisins and nuts. Serve at room temperature. Serves 6 or more.
