Semolina is the coarse, purified wheat middlings of durum wheat used in making pasta, and also used for making breakfast puddings and cereals. The semolina is also made of rice. In Turkey the semolina is known as Irmik.

The term semolina derives from the Italian word "semola" that derives from the ancient Latin simila, meaning "flour", itself a borrowing from Greek (semidalis), "groats".

This flour is popular in northwestern Europe and North America as a dessert, boiled with milk and sweetened semolina pudding. It is often flavored with vanilla and served with Jam.

In South India, the Semolina is used to make rava dosa and upma. In North India it is used for sweets such as suji halwa. A popular dessert in Greece (Halvas), Pakistan (Halva), Turkey (Helva), Iran (Halva), and Arab countries (Halwa), is sometimes made with semolina scorched with sugar, milk, butter and nuts.
