PINEAPPLE HALWA

Posted in : SWEETS / UNDE/LADDU / BURFI / HOLIGE/POORAN POLI / HALWA on by : Divya Suresh

One more sweet dish , using fruit, which I tasted in a restaurant….( Bikanerwala) immediately I could guess the ingredients in it. Its aroma itself said everything. Then curiously enquired in the sweet section, the man agreed to my guess… he said ” hanji madam aisa hee banta hai “…. unwillingly !!!! Its a delicious sweet with very few ingredients and it turns out yummiest. One more thing is, I used home made Khova / Khoya, which I prepared freshly ( in Microwave ) for this recipe. So I’m glad to share the recipe. My guess was right as I got it perfect,  more or less exactly like restaurant.

 

 

       Ingredients :

  • Pineapple ( grated ) – 1 & 1/2 cup
  • Sugar – 1/4 cup
  • Ghee – 1 & 1/2 tbsp
  • Saffron strands – few
  • Khova / Khoya – made out of 1 tin milkmaid
  • Pistachio – 1/4 cup chopped
  • Water – 1/2 cup

 

        PROCEDURE : 

  • In a pan add pineapple and water, bring it to boil
  • Add ghee and Sugar, cook well till sugar dissolves and again water evaporates
  • Add few saffron strands and keep few for garnishing
  • Now add Khova / Khoya , cook further for 8 to 10 minutes
  • Garnish with remaining saffron strands and pistachio pieces
  • Serve hot
