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
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
- 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
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.
