harissa or namoura or basbousa
This is my aunt's recipe, which my mom swears on. it's very good.
if you add coconut i think the name changes but honestly i have no clue what to call this it depends on who i'm talking to.
NOTE: This recipe is a WIP i only got instructions until "let it rest for 1 hour"...going to try it this weekend to see how long to bake for and at what temp

- Add melted butter to the bowl with the semolina. Mix well. make sure there are no dry lumps.
