1. Boil the milk in a pan and thicken it and keep it aside.
2. In a pan add 1tbs ghee and saute the kaju & kismis. Keep aside
3. In the same pan add the remaining ghee and saute the semiya.
4. Saute till they turn light transparent.
5. Then slowly add water and cook them.
6. Once they turn soft completely add milk and bring them to boil.
7. Keep stirring and add sugar. Lower the flame.
8. Once the sugar dissolves add the crushed pineapple pieces (You can even boil the pineapple separately and add/grind them in a mixer)
9. Add few drops of yellow edible colour, pineapple essence.
10. Mix well and add condensed milk if preferred. This is not mandatory.
11. Add the elaichi powder and mix well. Bring them to boil.
12. Add the roasted nuts.

 Serve hot!!! Remember if you leave this payasam even for an hour semiya would take up the milk and you would end up having a pineapple semiya without milk. So if you are going to serve chill. Once you take out of fridge add some more cold boiled milk and condensed milk. Mix well and serve :)
