how to make pineapple- kesari


  • 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 pan, 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 other hand.
  • Do not panic if the mixture gets watery.
  • You will get the right consistency if you continuously stir this for few minutes.
  • Mix the turmeric powder with milk add to this. This is to bring slight yellow colour, you can add food colour too.
  • Add the ghee at regular intervals. Add cardamom powder and the roasted cashews.
  • Mix well. Cook for 3-4 minutes in a low flame and lastly add 1 tsp of ghee to give it a glaze.
  • Switch off the flame.
  • Serve warm.

  1. Lovely Kesari with yellow pineapple, even i like Saravana Bhavan Kesari.

    now Saravana Bhavan came closer to us, hope u would have heared the news!

  2. I've made pineapple kesari a few times too and it has always been received well – my husband in particular likes it a lot. Looks very tempting Jeyashri.

  3. Rava kesari is my favorite sweet and love it more cause it can be made quickly. Pineapple version looks damn yummy too. I have had it before but never thought of trying. But now.. cant stop getting tempted. will make it soon 🙂

  4. 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.

  5. Hi Jeyashri! Had lot of pineapple in the fridge and wondering what to do with it. Came across this recipe in your blog. Came out well. Thanks a ton! Keep up the good work!!
