How to cook:

Step 1. Make the dough
Mix sugar, baking powder, salt, butter, and fine semolina, and stir thoroughly.  You can mix this dough using your hands or a spoon.
Pour the milk into the dough, and knead the ingredients until smooth with a slightly wet but dense texture.  Let the dough rest for about 10-15 minutes.

Step 2: Shape the dough
Take about a handful and shape it into a ball.  Next, coat all surfaces of the dough balls with coarse semolina and then flatten them with a thickness of about 0.5 cm.

Step 3: Fry the dough until golden brown
Pour some oil into the pan, add the dough that has been flattened, and fry until the surface is slightly browned about 3-5 minutes. Flip the dough so that it cooks evenly with the same brownish color.

Apart from frying, you can also bake the semolina dough in the oven at around 180°C for a few minutes. But before that, keep the dough in the freezer for a while.

Step 4: Serve the Harcha cake
Generally, Harcha can be eaten with your favorite butter, cheese, or jam.  Apart from that, you can also eat it with tea or coffee to keep you awake while watching the world cup.
