Semolina is a product that is created by using durum wheat. It is made from the nourishing and healthy part of the grain.
Semolina is high in gluten and commonly used to make pasta. The elevated gluten content helps pasta retain its flavor and shape.
Semolina is often used in Indian dishes and is gritty in texture. Indian dishes made with this flour include rave idli, upma, halwa and milk puddings.
Italian gnochhi is created with the use of Semolina. The flour is also sprinkled under pizza crust to keep it from adhering to the pan.
Semolina should be kept in a dry and cool place and stored in airtight containers.
