Pineapple kesari is a simple sweet recipe prepared with semolina, pineapple pieces, ghee and sugar. Basically, it is just like rava kesari with a nice pineapple flavor. Since I like the flavor of pineapple a lot, I tried this pineapple kesari last month for my son’s birthday and it tasted awesome. So I wanna share this recipe with you. Give it a try.

Pineapple Kesari

Pineapple Kesari is a popular sweet dish in Bangalore, state of Karnataka. It is commonly served during festivals and wedding parties. Though it is a sweet dish, in Karnataka, it is prepared not only as a sweet dish but also for normal breakfasts. It is widely popular as Fruit Kesari n Tamil Nadu, Sooji Halwa in Noth India.

Furthermore, I would like to give some suggestions for making pineapple kesari. First of all, fry rava in low heat until it is roasted. It will take 4 to 5 mins. Secondly, keep stirring after adding boiling water to rava, so that there won’t be any lumps formed. Finally, I have used saffron for color, however, you can also use yellow food color instead of saffron. But adding of saffron gives some rich taste. Add this food color when the water is boiling with pineapple pieces.

Once pineapple kesari cools it will thicken. So if you want to cut into pieces, then spread the kesari in the ghee greased plate evenly. When it cools completely, then cut them into square pieces.

Pineapple Kesari stays good at room temperature for one day. You can also keep it in the refrigerator for nearly 2 days. The second day it tastes even better with a nice pineapple flavor. You can also add some saffron (soaked in 2 tbsp of hot milk) instead of food color.
