In an individual serving bowl serve both sheera side by side and garnish with pistachios.
Make them in cupcake shape use about 3 oz cups or use the size you prefer. Fill the cups half the way with pineapple sheera and level it, then fill the cup with sooji sheera and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Over the plate take them out upside down, now you have pineapple sheere on the top, or you may keep sooji sheera on the top, garnish with pistachios. I call them Sheera Cake Bites.
