Mafroukeh is a Lebanese dessert made up of semolina and a layer of ashta & pistachio make this dessert more beautiful. In other words if we say it’s a simple semolina cake. I have innovated this dessert with chocolate , and it is too healthy and rich in calories.
For Mafroukeh Base –
Semolina – 1 cup
Chocolate – 10 to 15 ( 1 ½ cup )
Milk – 2 cup
Oil – 1 tbsp
Green cardamom essence – few drops
For Ashta ( Cream ) –
Milk – 1 cup
Cream – ½ cup
Sugar – 1 cup
Bread – 5 slice ( cut out their borders & turn them in crumbs form )
Prepare Ashta :-
In a utensil boil milk add bread crumbs , sugar , cream . Mix all of them well and cook till it becomes thick .
Take it out in a bowl and keep in fridge for 30 min.

Add chocolate pieces and cook at slow flame. Chocolate will slowly & slowly melt and will start getting mix with semolina.
Now add milk and cook till it start leaving the pan.
Switch off the flame mix green cardamom essence .
Take it out in a cake mould & leave for 20 min to set .
From the cake mould , take out mafroukeh base in a plate. ( Don’t keep it in fridge at this stage. )
When it is totally cool down than cover the base with thick layer of ashta and sprinkle pistachio powder on it.
