Melt butter in a pot and add semolina. Stir until it turns a yellowish color. Boil sugar and water in a separate pot and then add it gradually to the semolina. Let it cook over low heat till it gets soft and becomes dough.

Cut cheese into thin slices. Dip slices in boiling water and lift out immediately and add it to the semolina dough. Stir and mix well. Serve hot.
