Pineapple Kesari Recipe

Written By Angela Steffi on Monday, October 3, 2016 | 11:36:00 PM

Pineapple kesari is one of the easiest recipes to make,it is extremely forgiving and it taste absolutely delicious. kesari is always been a good companion to other breakfast recipe like idlies & dosas.Today we are going to spice up the regular Rava kesari and make pineapple kesari while enhancing its taste and retaining its simplicity.I make this very often when unexpected guests shows up or when I feel bored to pamper my taste buds.And another thing I like the most about this recipe is it can be made in one pot if we follow the same steps.


Serving Size      : 4 people

Cooking Time   : 20 minutes

1 cup Sooji / Rava / Semolina
1 cupSugar
1/2 cup Pineapple Chunks or grated pineapple
1/4 cup Pineapple Puree
4 tbsp Ghee
some Cashew nuts
some Raisins
2 tbsp Saffron water or yellow food color(optional)
2 cupsWater (or 1.5 cup water + 1/2 cup milk)

Cooking Method

Step 1) Add some Ghee in a pan and roast cashews first,once it turn golden add the raisins and roast until they are ballooned, do not burn them (they will taste bitter if burnt).
Transfer this to a plate and then add the sooji and roast it nicely until you get a nice aroma and golden color.The rava is done when your whole house is filled with the aroma of roasted rava and the roasted rava should have a golden color.It will take around 8-10 minutes.when it obtains golden color remove the pan from heat and immediately transfer it to a plate to prevent browning.


Step 2) And again in the same pan add water.Once the water comes to a boil add the pineapple puree and the chunks and cook it for 3-4 minutes.For this recipe we have taken two cups of water for 1 cup of rawa. However if you prefer a more creamy and richer kesari you can use 1.5 cups of water and ½ cup of milk for every cup of rawa. 
Now to this gradually add the roasted rava and and keep stirring to prevent lumps once you get a lump free mixture cook until all the water is absorbed by the rawa


Step 3) Once all the water has been absorbed by the rava/ sooji aadd the rest of the ghee and incorporate well.Also add the Saffron water (few strands of Saffron soaked in warm water).This is optional you can also use yellow food color if you wish


Step 4) Next gradually add Sugar and mix well.The ratio of Rava to sugar can be adjusted according to your sweet preference, A ratio of 1:1 ie 1 cup of sugar for 1 cup of rawa is preferred by most people. However if you prefer a moderate sweetness you can use ¾ cup of sugar per cup of rawa. You can adjust the sweetness somewhere from ¾ cup to 2 cups of sugar for every 1 cup of rava / Sooji.
Finally add the roasted nuts and mix well and serve.


Our Delicious and Yummy Pineapple Rava kesari is ready to be served.As I mentioned earlier you can serve this dessert with any breakfast recipes.This is more tastier than regular kesari and taste much better.
Happy Cooking Friends:)
