1 ½ cups canned, crushed pineapple
1 cup milk
½ cup rava/semolina/cream of wheat
2 tsp sugar (according to taste)
1 Tbsp ghee
A pinch of powdered cardamom
Heat the ghee in a pan and add the rava to it & toast it till it is done. (You can tell by the smell when it’s done.)
Add the milk followed by the crushed pineapple. Stir continuously and keep mixing well on low to medium heat for about 15-20 minutes.
Add the almonds, sugar & cardamom powder and continue to cook for another 2 -3 minutes.
Serve hot or cold.
P.S.- I am really not sure whether this is a halwa or a sheera or a kesari. I’m pretty sure that there is some subtle difference. If any one of you knows the difference, do let me know.
