Pineapple Ada Pradaman

Ada Pradaman, a yummy and finger licking desert is famous in god's own country which is prepared during festivals. Its is a creamy dessert prepared using milk and jaggery. Condensed milk can also be added as substitute to Jaggery to make the dessert more creamier. Sauteing pineapple pieces in a ghee enhances the taste and flavor. 

I have included pineapple pieces in a regular pradaman, as my secret ingredients for October month "Shhh cooking secretly challenge" are pineapple and Jaggery given by a lovely blogger Janani from
