The semolina pudding can be prepared through Step 3 and refrigerated overnight. Serve lightly chilled or at room temperature. Garnish the dessert just before serving.
Silver leaf is a completely flavorless, microscopically thin sheet of real silver that comes between sheets of paper. It's available at Indian groceries and at qualityspices.com.
Semolina, coarsely ground durum wheat, is often used to make pasta. It is available at many supermarkets, health food stores and ethnic markets. One great brand to try is Bob's Red Mill (bobsredmill.com).
