I had brought four slices of pineapple from the market. Its in season now & one can see many handcarts selling 4 slices of pineapple in packet for the price of 20 bucks ! I used up 2 pineapple slices for making pineapple sheera .The remaining two sices I used up while making this gojju. I wanted to try & see how the rcie turns out in my hands .So just two slices.
Ingrdients : 2 slices of pineapple ( peeled ) , 1 tbsp jaggery, 1 tbsp fresh dessicated coconut, 1/8 Methi seeds, 1 tsp urad dal, 2 tsp Sesame seeds ( used white unpolished ), 4 dry red chillies ( used 2 byadgi & 2 lavangi chillies ) , 1/ 2tsp mustard seeds, 1/4 tsp hing, 1/4 tsp haldi, 1 tsp oil,5-6 curry leaves , 1 tsp lemon juice, salt to taste.
Method : Roughly chop the pineapple piece & let them be cooked in a little water & hing. Add jaggery to the pineapple pieces as they are getting cooked
Meanwhile dry roast methi seeeds, sesame seeds, dry red chillies & urad dal all separately. Alternatively little bit of oil can be used to fry sesame seeds & methi seeds ...both separately. Keep aside all roasted ingredients. Take all the roasted ingredients & add fresh desiccated coconut to it. Make a paste of all these items with some little water .Pour the paste into the pinapple water jaggery mix. It must be boiling now.
Prepare vagar by popping mustard seeds & curry leaves. Pour this vagar over the coconut curried pineapple mix. Add lemon juice. Mix nicely. The pineapple gojju is ready .Serve with rice and or rotis !
The gojju tasted great. Even my parents said that !
