Sweet Boli with Pineapple sooji stuffing

Last friday, I invited my friend for lunch & made pineapple kesari for dessert.  Saturday morning, I want to try something new and finally, I decided to make the boli with the leftover delicacy & it was extremely tasty.  Pravin had it with ghee & warm milk and my son had just like it.

Method :

1.   For the dough :  Combine all the ingredients & knead the dough till smooth.  Cover & keep aside for atleast 1/2 hr.

2.   Heat ghee in the pan, add the nuts followed by rava (semolina).  Roast till light golden brown & add sugar.

3.   Meanwhile warm the water & add the pineapple essence to it.  

4.   Now add the water to the roasted semolina & pineapple chunks.  Cover & cook till done.

5.   Allow the stuffing to cool.   Shape the dough to round balls & roll them like rotis.  Stuff the sooji & seal the edges.  Roll them like CD discs & cook them on low flame.   Add oil/ghee arround the edges for more flavour.
