Samali light with yogurt


An easy and quick dessert, light and very tasty to accompany your ice cream in the afternoon, your coffee, the treat or the dessert of your Sunday meal. A wonderful recipe that Mrs. Kasomouli offered me with great pleasure and I thank her very much.


  • 3 fat yogurts 2% fat
  • Or a kilo of thick semolina
  • 1 kg soda
  • 1 glass of ouzo
  • Grate 3 oranges
  • 1 kg of crystallized sugar (for our mixture we will use 1 cup, the rest will be put in the syrup)
  • 100g almond

For the syrup

  • 2 glasses of water
  • The rest of the sugar
  • 1 pot of fresh orange juice


  1. Mix the yogurt with the sugar with an egg beater. Then add the orange zest and ouzo (after previously dissolving the soda inside) and at the end add the semolina.
  2. Mix well, to homogenize our ingredients.
  3. We take a pan (about 28 cm), butter it and put the porridge inside.
  4. Bake at 180The for 30 minutes.
  5. While we bake our dessert, we prepare the syrup and the almonds (we peel the almonds and break them in a mortar or blender, very carefully so that they do not become powder, because we want them in pieces). Put them in the oven on a plate for 10 minutes until they turn brown and throw them on the cake when it is lukewarm.
  6. When the dessert comes out, we pour the syrup over it. (hot dessert, hot syrup)

Good luck!
