Pineapple sheera

I had half pineapple sitting in my fridge for couple of days and I wanted to use in up before my fridge cleaning schedule.I couldn't think of any recipe to add it to accept navratan korma and pineapple sheera.So I made both this week and it was the first time I made a pineapple sheera and my son loved it.


!/2 cup fresh pineapple chopped into small cubes
1/2 cup sooji
1 tbsp ghee
1/4 cup sugar (you can add more according to your taste)
1/2 tsp cardamon powder
nuts and raisins according your liking
Few strands of saffron
1 cup water
1 tbsp warm milk


Boil the pineapple pieces in 1 cup water until they are soft.In a wok add ghee roast the nuts and raisins.Keep aside.In the same wok add sooji and roast until light golden brown,Remove the tender pineapple pieces from the boiling water and add the water to the sooji.Stir well.Sooji will absorb water and thicken.Mash half of the boiled pineapple pieces.Now add sugar,mashed and chopped pineapple pieces,cardamon,saffrom(dissolved saffron in warm milk) and mix well.Cover and cook for 4-5 mins.Serve hot.
