Pineapple Halwa


Pineapple Halwa
 If you love the pleasant smell of pineapples here is a mouthwatering dessert. Its preparation is similar to carrot and beetroot halwa.This is a no fuss and easy to make delicacy which you will surely enjoy. You can use pureed pineapple or shredded pineapple. Usually Mawa/khoya is used to make this halwa. Here I used condensed and it tasted equally delicious.

Ingredients
Pineapple - 1
Condensed Milk- 1 tin
Sugar-2 tsp( optional)
Ghee- 3 tsp
Rice flour- 2 tbs
( or all purpose flour)
Cardamon powder- 1/2 tsp
Cashew nuts- 8-10
Raisins- 15- 20 nos
Yellow food color- 2 drops(optional)



Chop pineapple or make a puree. Heat ghee in a heavy pan and fry raisins and cashews and keep aside. Now add in the pineapple puree and stir in continuously till all the water evaporates, Mix rice flour and color in 1/3 cup of water/milk and add stirring continuously and make sure there is no lumps. Add condensed milk  and sugar and cardamon powder and stir till it all becomes one mass. Grease plate with ghee and transfer the contents, spread evenly. Garnish with fried cashews and raisins and allow to set and cool.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
