Pineapple Kesari




 Pineapple Kesari

Kesari is a very unique and popular sweet of South India with a soft melt in mouth texture.Adding fresh juicy pineapples makes it even more special. If you like the flavor of pineapple this sweet/dessert is irresistible. The chief ingredients are semolina/sooji,sugar and ghee.I first tasted pineapple kesari when I visited Udupi in Karnataka and fell in love with this. There it was served as a sweet for breakfast. Try this.you will surely love it.

Ingredients
Rava or Sooji- 1 cup
Chopped pineapple- 1 cup
Sugar- 2cup
Water- 2 cups
Warm Milk-1 cup
Ghee-4 tbs
Cardamon-6-8
few drops of food color
Raisins and cashew nuts- a few



Chop pineapple in small pieces and keep aside. In a pot bring water and milk to a boil.
In a heavy bottom pan heat one tsp of ghee and fry cashews till golden brown and raisins till they puff and keep aside.
In the same pan roast rava till it starts changing color to golden ,you can feel a nice roasted aroma. Remove and spread on a platter and allow to cool a bit.
Add the rest of the ghee into the pan and saute the pineapples and allow it to cook, stir fry continuously for about four to five minutes. Add half a cup of sugar and mix.Allow it to caramelize and saute till all the liquid is absorbed.
Pour in the warm milk and water and add food color and then slowly add in the rava. Spread out evenly. Mix well to avoid lumps and close lid just for a few seconds.Remove lid and  continuously stir till water evaporates and add sugar ,cardamon powder and a few drops the ghee. Stir till it the mixture leaves the edges of the pan like a halwa .Garnish with raisins.  Switch off the flame and close lid for a few more seconds.Grease plate with ghee and spread the mixture and let it get set and cool down and cut into desired shapes.


Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy.
