Pineapple is one of the fruits available only during the summer since it is grown locally here in a place namely Moodbidri. These Pineapple grown here are so huge in size that they vary from 5-6 kg by weight as well. More over this variety is very sweet and juicy. During the season we can even prepare juice adding preservatives to store for the whole year rather than buying it in the super markets . W e also prepare Murabba , Pineapple sasam, Gojju etc., Today i would like to put up Pineapple Pudding which is served for most of the functions nowadays with a scoup of Ice cream as well!!

      Hi Anjalis,

      Pineapple sheera is called by the name Pineapple pudding. Infact you can enjoy it with any icecream of your flavour. I hope i am clear.

    Dear Aunty,
    Tried the recipe today. The sweetness was just how we like it. No icecream at home. Shall try the combination tonight. I should say I am getting addicted to your blog in a very pleasant way. Thanks for teaching me all of this being miles away.
