  1. Boil water in a pot.
  2. Gradually mix the semolina flour into the boiling water, stirring with a spatula until it forms a smooth and lump-free dough. Stop adding semolina flour when you can no longer stir easily.
  3. Stir the semolina mixture vigorously to eliminate any lumps.
  4. Once you have a smooth mixture, add a small amount of water to bring it to the desired consistency. Cover the pot, and cook for about 3 minutes.
  5. Serve with your soup of choice.
