    Because in America we don’t use the metric system, I find it too time consuming to convert your measurements into cups, tbsp., tsps, etc. Any chance of you converting these?

      Hi Sherrill! Of course! You can use 1 cup for the Milk, 1/4 cup of Semolina, 1/8 cup of Raisins, 1/4 cup of Almonds and 1/8 cup of Ginger Syrup. Very excited to hear how you like this sweet! Have a good day 🙂
