Moroccan Arabic سميدة
Smida – pronounced "smee-da" – is the Moroccan Arabic word for semolina. The French word semoule is also used. Semolina is produced from the middlings of hard durum wheat, and it's the flour most commonly used to make pasta and couscous.
In Morocco, semolina can be purchased with a fine or coarse texture. Fine semolina is called smida rqiqa (صميدة رقيقة) in Arabic and semoule fine in French; coarse semolina is smida ghlida (صميدة غليضة) in Arabic and semoule grosse in French. These forms of semolina should not be confused with durum flour, which is ground even more finely.
