Semolina is coarsely ground durum wheat, with particles mostly between 0.25 and 0.75 mm in diameter. The same milling grade is called grits if made from maize, and farina if made from barley or wheat other than 100% durum.
Semolina is the primary ingredient in all pasta and in couscous, and is also popular as a porridge. Semolina porridge has come to be known in the United States by the trade name Cream of Wheat. Semolina pudding is prepared much in the same way as semolina porridge, but is heavily sweetened and served chilled.
In India it is called Sooji also and in southern part of India it is called Rava.
