This is one of my fav desert which I absolutely love this can be made plain too but I absolutely love Pineapple sheera also known as pineapple pudding in Konkani ...it's delicious with a love pineapple bits which makes it even lovely to have and taste....Here goes the recipe for this sheera which I learnt it from my mother in law :)
1 cup pineapple (remove the skin and chop it finely)
1 cup slightly coarse Rawa / Semolina
1/4 cup ghee + 1 tbsp ghee for roasting semolina
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar ( I have used slightly less then this but you can increase as per your sweet tooth)
2 tbsp chopped cashews (roasted in ghee)
1/4 tsp Kesar /saffron
1 and 3/4 cup water + 1/2 cup for boiling pineapple
1 tsp Green cardamom/ elaichi powder
- Finely chop the pineapple or you can blitz in food pro just once such that you have bits in it or you can even grate the pineapple then remove this in a pan add in 1/2 cup water add kesar, 2 tbsp sugar and boil it till it's reduced to 1/2 and keep it aside.
- Add 1 tbsp ghee in non stick pan and roast semolina till nice aroma then add in pineapple puree and required amount of water and fry it till thick you must continuously keep stirring ensuring there are no lumps.
- Add in sugar and mix well now add in ghee and oil and keep mixing till semolina leaves ghee then add in elaichi powder, roasted cashews.
- Serve chilled or eat it just like that it's pure bliss !
