Soak saffron strands in 1 tbsp milk and keep aside for minimum 45 mins before cooking.
Heat ghee in a wok and add cardamom powder and semolina. Roast till the semolina is light golden in color.
Once the semolina is golden and starts leaving a roasted flavorful aroma of ghee, this is when you have to add chopped cashews and roast for another few minutes. Roast the semolina in low flame to avoid getting burnt.
In a separate pan add water and heat simultaneously.
Once the semolina is nicely roasted, add sugar, pineapple puree, pineapple pieces, saffron soaked milk and water.
Mix well and keep stirring till the water dries up and the halwa starts leaving the sides and gather as a lump. Mix till the required consistency is reached.
Turn off the gas, pour in a tbsp of ghee on top and serve in bowls.
Garnish with some saffron strands and pineapple pieces and serve hot!
