Thank You and Pineapple Sheera

Thank you, dear visitor

Veggie Platter has hit the '100' mark. Yes, I have completed 101 posts (including this), since I started blogging from last December. I would have reached this tiny milestone months ago, if I had maintained the consistency and vigor of my initial blogging days. Nevertheless, here I am after seven months of blogging.

I would love to thank you all for visiting my blog and I really appreciate you and your valuable time spent here. Hope you continue to visit and enjoy my blog.
Ending on a sweet note, here is a recipe for pineapple sheera.


What you need:
Pineapple fruit chopped into small cubes- 1/2 cup
Semolina / Rava - 1/2 cup

Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 Tbsp
Raisins & Cashews - 1 tbsp
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 Tsp

Pineapple essence - 1/2 tsp (optional)
Yellow food color - a little (optional)

Cooking part:
Cook pineapple in 3/4 cup of water in a MW.
Mean while, dry fry the semolina on low flame with constant stirring, till it starts to turn light brown. Keep it aside.
Boil a cup of water in a saucepan or a small wok. Add sugar, cardamom powder, food color and the essence to it and stir once or twice till the sugar completely melts. Then turn down the stove to low and add the cooked pineapple and the semolina. Stir the mixture well so that there are no lumps and there is a homogeneous mixture. Cook till the semolina is done.

Heat ghee in a small pan and add cashews and raisins. Toast them till cashews turn golden brown and raisins turn plump. This step takes less than a minute.
Add this mixture to the cooked semolina - pineapple sheera and mix well.
Serve warm.

Hi suma!
Congratulations on reaching 100 posts !!!!!! pineapple kesari looks yummy! but i have a doubt.. will the sooji /rava get cooked if we add sugar in the beggining???? b'coz until the rava gets cooked i wont add sugar. if added rava wont get cooked easily.

All dear friends,
Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement.

Suma Gandlur said...

UshaPrashanth,
I always add sugar before rava. Rava cooks without any problem within a short time.That's what my mom does when preparing kesari bhath.
