I normally cook it for at least 20 mins.
Beat eggs, milk, and egg yellow colouring together.
Add liquid ingredients to the braised semolina and continue stirring.
Add sugar a little at a time until you reach the sweetness you desire.
Add desiccated coconut,sultanas, cinnamon powder, elachi powder and almonds. Continue stirring.
