What is Kuindiong Made of?

Kuindiong is a dessert made from sweetened semolina. Semolina, milk, yoghurt, butter, and sugar are used to make it. It is made by combining all of the ingredients and boiling them together until the mixture thickens. It is typically topped with Miok, a milk-yoghurt mixture that is mostly consumed as a dessert.
