Sheetal Kamat

This item was something I tasted in bangalore. It was so common there for bfast or weddings. This item was must in the menu.. I didnt eat that much when I was there because it either use to be too sweet or not much of pineapple taste. This week when I got nice riped pineapple, i thought of trying this. And the result was wonderfully tasty and sweet enough for my tooth

Pineapple Sheera
Ingredients
1.5 Cup Pineapple Pieces
1 Cup Rawa
8 Spoon Sugar
2 Spoon Ghee
2 Spoon Cashews
2 Spoon Raisins
2 Pinch Saffron
2 Spoon Milk

Method
  • Warm the milk and mix safron in it. Keep aside.
  • Boil 4 cups of water in a pan
  • Add pineapple pieces to it and let them cook on the medium flame
  • Parallely heat the ghee in the another pan
  • Fry the cashews and keep aside
  • Add rawa to the ghee and fry it with constant stirring till it turns light brown
  • When the pineapple is cooked, add the (only) pineapple pieces to the rawa and keep stirring
  • In the remaining water from the cooked pineapple add 2 spoons of sugar and boil it
  • Add this boiling water to rawa pineapple mixture and cook with constant stirring
  • When the sheera thickens, add sugar, safron milk, raisins and cashews and stir well till it thickens

Notes
Fry rawa and cashews on lowest possible flame so that you dont end up burning them.
Adjust the sugar quantity according to your taste, but this was the best taste i got with 8 spoons of sugar, the pineapply - sweet one.

    Thanks Sheetal. My first attempt at sheera was a disaster. This time I tried your recipe (i love pineapple sheera and we had pineapple left over) and thanks to your details, it turned out quite decent!


  9. @Ramya:
    Thanks and glad it helped.

    Hi sheetal,

    Just wanted to confirm d quantity of water used in making d sheera.. For 1 cup rawa shall I use 4 cups of water?
    I generally use 2.5 cups water for 1 cup rawa..

    thanks..

    Regards,
    Deepal


  11. @deepal, yes use 4 cup of water for the 1 cup rawa, but as mentioned first it is used to let the pineapple cook and then use the remaining water for the rawa.

    Hey sheetal, thanks for ur reply..
    But approx how much time should I cook d pineapple?


  13. Around 20 minutes.. That's just approximation and you should check if the pineapple is cooked before taking it off heat.
