Bacon Semolina Pudding, Apple Mango Compote

BaconSemolina1 I have not used this Semolina recipe in years and if I really think hard I can’t recall when I used Semolina all together. Semolina is popular in Europe and in Switzerland and Germany we got numerous recipes. For this dish I was using the fat from the oven roasted bacon to give it a unique flavor served with an Apple and Mango Compote. The term “Semolina” derives from the Italian word “Semola” that derives from the Ancient Latin simila meaning “flour”; itself a borrowing from Greek  “groats”. Though present in Latin and Greek, the word is not Indo-European in origin but a loan word from the Semitic root smd – to grind into groats. The root is attested in Arabic, Aramaic and Akkadian. In Arabic, semolina is referred to as samîd, also spelled sameed. Semolina, made from durum wheat, is known in North India as Sooji; in South India, Ravey in Kannada, Rava/Ravam/Ravai in Telugu/Tamil, In Tamilnadu, the Semolina is also made of rice. In Turkey, semolina is known as irmik.
