Pineapple sheera

Pineapple Sheera is a delightful and aromatic Indian dessert that combines the richness of semolina with the tropical flavors of pineapple and saffron. This easy-to-make sweet treat is a perfect way to satisfy your cravings for a delectable dessert.


The process begins with roasting semolina in ghee until it turns golden brown, infusing it with a nutty aroma. The roasted semolina is then combined with the richness of roasted almonds and cashew nuts, adding a delightful crunch to the dish.


The star of the dish, pineapple, adds a burst of sweetness and tanginess, creating a perfect balance of flavors. The pineapple puree and chopped pineapple pieces are mixed with the semolina mixture, infusing it with tropical goodness.


To add a touch of luxury and elegance, saffron is crushed and added to the sheera, lending its vibrant color and unique aroma. The saffron-infused sheera is further enhanced by the addition of sugar syrup, making it an indulgent and satisfying dessert.


Portions serving: 3-4 pax

Preparation time: 15 mins

Cooking time: 25 mins

Calories: 281 cal per portion




3-4 tsp Ghee

1 Cup Semolina

2-3 tsp Almonds

2-2 tsp Cashew Nuts

1 cup Sugar Syrup

1 Cup chopped Pineapple

1 cup Pineapple Puree

1/2 tsp Saffron




Roasting Semolina:

Heat some ghee in a pot or pan over medium heat.

Add the semolina to the pan and roast it until it turns slightly golden brown. The roasting process will enhance the flavor and texture of the semolina.


Removing the Roasted Semolina:

Once the semolina is roasted to a golden color, remove it from the pan and transfer it to a separate bowl. This will prevent the semolina from overcooking and becoming too dark.


Roasting Almonds and Cashew Nuts:

In the same pan, add 2 tsp of ghee and allow it to melt.

Add the almonds and cashew nuts to the pan and roast them until they turn golden brown. The roasted nuts will add a delightful crunch and nutty flavor to the dish.


Mixing the Ingredients:

Add the roasted semolina back into the pan with the roasted almonds and cashew nuts.

Pour in the sugar syrup, along with the chopped pineapple and pineapple puree, to the pan. The pineapple will add a sweet and tangy taste to the sheera.


Infusing with Saffron:

Crush the saffron strands slightly to release their color and flavor.

Add the crushed saffron to the pan, giving the sheera a beautiful bright yellow hue and a distinct saffron aroma.


Cooking the Pineapple Sheera:

Allow the mixture to cook and simmer over low heat. Stir it occasionally to prevent sticking and ensure even cooking.

The pineapple sheera will thicken and the flavors will meld together as it cooks.


Determining the Readiness:

The sheera is ready when its color becomes a vibrant bright yellow or saffron, and the semolina has absorbed the flavors of the pineapple and saffron.

Serving the Pineapple Sheera:


The pineapple sheera can be served hot or cold, depending on your preference. If serving it hot, transfer it to a serving dish and enjoy it immediately.

If serving it cold, allow it to cool down to room temperature and then refrigerate it until ready to serve.


Pineapple Sheera is sure to be a hit among your family and guests. Its creamy texture, tropical flavors, and the aroma of saffron make it a delightful way to end a meal or enjoy as a sweet snack.
