Pineapple Bread Pola

Pineapple Bread Pola

Bread pola is a popular sweet/ snack of Malabar made with left over bread. It is an easy snack with a texture that resembles bread pudding moist and tender.The star ingredient here is caramelized pineapple.It is an egg based dessert and is slow cooked on stove top. This helps to infuse the flavor of pineapple. Try this you will surely love it.

Bread slices- 8
Eggs- 4
All purpose flour- 2 tbs
Milk-3/4 cup
Pineapple chopped- 1 cup
Ghee- 2 tsp
Cardamon powder- 1/2 tsp
Sugar- 1/2 cup
( according to your sweet preference)
salt- a pinch
Cashew nuts- 8-10
Raisins- 2 tbs

I used an 8 inch pan for this recipe. First add the bread slices into a food processor and pulse a few times to make it course and crumbly. Set this aside.
Heat ghee in a pan and fry raisins and cashew nuts. Drain and keep aside.
In the same pan add the chopped pineapple and saute and fry till it changes color to golden brown for about 5-6 minutes. Add half of the sugar and cook till all the sugar is absorbed and the pineapple is caramelized. Set this aside.
In a large bowl beat egg till light and fluffy. Add sugar and cardamom powder and beat well. Mix in milk, all purpose flour and and the bread crumbs. Add in half of the caramelized pineapple and mix well. Heat a pan with little ghee and spread this mixture evenly. Cover and cook in medium for about three minutes till the top starts to set. Now spread the left over pineapple, raisins and cashew nuts. Cover and continue to cook covered  for another 15 minutes in low flame till the top sets and the sides release from the pan. If a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean it is done. Gently invert it on to a plate and allow to cool. Slice and serve with tea.

Try this,
Hope you will all enjoy!
