Sounds like a fancy version of cream of wheat. :) Thank you for the recipe.

So in looking up the proper Turkish uses of irmik, apparently this flour is
used for a sort of pudding called "irmik helvasi" (semolina helva). Not
being a spoon tease, I give you the recipe I came across in the blog Turkish

1 1/4 cup medium size semolina
3 tbsp unsalted butter
3 tbsp pine nuts
2 tbsp shredded coconut

2+1/3 cup sugar,
2+2/3 cup milk

* Prepare the syrup cooking milk and sugar in a pot and put aside.
* Melt the butter in a large pot.
* Add semolina and pine nuts.
* Stirring constantly, cook on medium-low heat until the colour turns to a
medium golden shade.
* Add the warm syrup.
* Stir until the mixture becomes doughy and leaves the edges of the pot.
* Turn the heat off.
* Serve with shredded coconut.

Ooooh, I love teh Interwebz! I found a clip on YouTube from a German show on
Turkish cooking on the making of irmik helvasi:
