Pineapple Kesari Recipe - Pineapple Kesari

Pineapple Kesari Recipe
I love it rava kesari or milk kesari or even fruit kesari.I have tasted pineapple kesari twice but never tried it on my own. This time when I bought pineapple I tried pineapple kesari , I love pineapple flavour and the fruit very much so loved it to the core. I made it when we had guests at home and they too loved it.I made adjustments to my rava kesari recipe and tried this pineapple kesari which came out so good that I wanted to post and record it.

My Notes:

  • If you want you can add pineapple essence but I didnt add as I loved the natural pineapple flavour itself.I didnt even add cardamom powder / kesar as I wanted full pineapple flavour.If you like you can add cardamom powder.
  • Cook pineapple and then add it else it will be crunchy.
  • Add sugar only after rava is cooked.
  • I add 1.5 cups of water and boiled the pineapple mixture only for 5mins so the water quantity was not an issue for me.If you boil for more , water will evaporate and will become less which will not be the perfect measure to cook rava.So if you are doubftul measure water and then add it.
  • Garnish with pineapple pieces,cashews and raisins.
  • If you are adding yellow food color as powder then dissolve it in a tsp of water then add it, this is ensure even coloring. If you use liquid food color then you can add it directly.
