Then add rose water to it. Keep for another 2 minutes.
Let the syrup cool.
In a bowl mix together semolina, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar.
In another bowl beat the egg.
Melt the butter and let it come to room temperature.
Add milk, egg, and butter to the flour mix. Mix well with a ladle. The batter consistency should be thick.
Preheat the oven.
Transfer the prepared batter to a greased baking tray. Spread evenly.
With a sharp knife cut the basbousa diagonally to diamond shapes.
Keep almonds on each diamond. (I was out of almonds so I kept some cashews)
Bake to about 30-40 minute at 2000C or till it is done.
Remove from the oven and move the knife through the cuts we have done prior to baking.
Pour the prepared sugar syrup over the prepared basbousa. Keep it for a while till it gets soaked in sugar syrup.
Serve n Enjoy.
