How To make Pineapple Sheera | Mithais of India

Pineapple sheera, or better known as pineapple kesari, is a melt-in-the-mouth dessert that is a luscious combination of fresh pineapple, roasted semolina, and lots of rich nuts such as cashews and almonds. Having its roots in Karnataka, kesari is a go-to breakfast dish in many South Indian households. Here, the word "Kesari" means saffron, which signifies the festivity of Ugadi, a South Indian festival.

But it doesn't mean that it hasn't crossed geographical boundaries. This sweet and tangy dessert has also made its way to North Indians, who refer to it as pineapple halwa or sheera. When it comes to taste, its smooth texture gives the palate a rich experience. It also seems appealing with its bright saffron colour and you can also make it look more mouthwatering by garnishing some cashews and raisins on top.
