Pineapple is a very refreshing fruit filled with its sweet and tangy taste. Though i can have it in any form but this pudding i discovered while having lunch at rajdhani restaurant. Pineapple halwa was served as a sweet dish there and i could not find it out before having a bite of it as it looked like a simple suji ka halwa with a bit yellowish colour. Though it took me a really long time to try it myself as every time pineapple was brought it was finished. This time i was determined to give it a try before it gets disappeared. After experimenting with it i discovered it was quite simple and taste awesome. Altogether a new dish to serve whenever someone arrives. The best part is that semolina has a setting property so one can give it any shape. I have used a pudding mold to present it in a new style so one won't be able to guess what exactly it is.

Lets look at the ingredients used in this recipe:-
Pineapple halwa
  1. Semolina/ suji 1 cup
  2. Sugar 1 cup
  3. Pineapple chopped 1 cup
  4. Ghee 1/4 cup
  5. Water 3 cups
  6. Silvered almonds to garnish

First of all chop the pineapple and keep aside.

Then take a blender or mixer and mix in the pineapple, sugar and water in it to form a syrup and keep it aside.

After that take suji/ semolina and fry it in ghee till it starts changing colour from white to golden. Keep the gas or stove on medium flame to avoid burning.

When suji/ semolina is properly fried then add the pineapple syrup which was kept aside and keep on stirring till all the water is evaporated and the mixture becomes thick as shown in the pic below.

Serve it hot garnishing it with some dry fruits of your choice. Or use any mold to give it a nice shape and then serve it as a surprise!
