PINEAPPLE KESARI RECIPE

Pineapple kesari  
After tasting a wondeful pineapple kesari in saravana bhavan ,i wanted to attempt this at home. This recipe i have tried so many times,but every time i make this , it gets over within 5 minutes. This time i pleaded them to wait  till i click the pictures. Thanks to them,so finally i am here with the recipe of pineapple kesari.  .
Check out my Rava kesari recipe.


Pineapple kesari recipe

  Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 25 Mins |Serves: 3-4

   Rava | sooji   1/2 cup
   Pineapple chunks  1/2 cup
   Water  1 and 1/2 cup
    Sugar   3/4 cup 
    Ghee  2 tblsp 
    Cashew nuts  few
    Cardamom powder   a pinch


Method: 
  • In a kadai, add a tsp of ghee and fry the cashews until they turn nice golden brown colour .
  • Keep it aside.

  • In the same kadai, dry roast the rava for few minutes, till a nice aroma arises and the rava turns slightly brown.
  • Be careful not to make it burn.

  • Cut the pineapple into fine pieces.
  • In a sauce pan heat the water and add the pineapple chunks and bring it to a boil.

  • Slowly add the hot water with the pineapple chunks to the roasted rava.

  • Stir well till the rava gets nicely cooked.
  • To check whether the rava is cooked  or not, wet your hands and touch the mixture.  If rava  doesnt stick to your hands it means it is completely cooked.
  • Now slowly add the sugar to this cooked rava.

  • To avoid getting lumps add sugar slowly with one hand and stir the mixture continuously with otherhand.
  • Do not panic if the mixture gets watery.
  • You will get the right consistency if you continuously stir this for few minutes.
  • Add the ghee, elachi and the roasted cashews.

  43. Thanks a lot. this is my favourite Indian dessert! :) The recipe is wonderful. Except I had one teeny small issue.... the ghee (3 table spoons) seemed a bit high. It was a bit "ghee" taste. But then that's because we love it more to be balanced with fruit, rava, sugar and ghee.
