Semolina Pudding with Strawberry Sauce

Valentine's Day is around the corner & air is already filled with lots of love. On time I got some strawberries to make the valentine's day tastier & colorful.
Semolina pudding is a traditional german dish. I added a little vanilla flavoring to the pudding to make it much more tastier. How I know that vanilla makes it more tastier ? I made it twice before posting it in this blog & the first experiment with out vanilla made it a little bland. The base dish "Semolina pudding" remains the same, but you can customize the sauce with your choice of fruit to make it more interesting.
