Occasionally we can make this yummy and healthy sweet dish, though we add sugar in it……It also has all the goodness of semolina, Pineapple, Saffron strands and all. We should choose sweeter pineapple to make this dish or else we should add a pinch of salt if the pineapple is little sour. It is very quick and easy recipe, which can be made using wheat semolina, rice semolina and millets as well.  I forgot to take step wise procedure pics, shall add it soon here!

  • Saffron strands – 1/4 tsp  Soaked in 1 tbsp warm water
