Pineapple Rava Kesari | Pineapple Kesari Bath

For want of a better reason, I settled down to say that I wanted to share this Pineapple Kesari for starting with a sweet this new year. I hardly ever give in for such sentiments, however I thought it's never too late to begin now. 

As I said in my recap, I am never too keen on having any resolutions. I have seen myself breaking those resolutions the first chance I get and decided long back never to strain on planning to have anything specific. Still it is always good if we have a definite plans and that I decided would be to cook and experience all those foods that I keep wanting to make and never get around making it myself.

Coming to one such dish, this Pineapple Kesari would fit the bill so well. I have been wanting to make this for a long time and never had a good chance at making it. Since we ended up getting the whole fruit, and I made that Pineapple Upside down cake, I thought I might as well make this too. So one stroked out of my long to do list.

The kesari came out so well. I followed the same process I do for making the regular Kesari bath. Normally the juice is not added and is made with just water. I added juice and also used milk. The only risk you run when you use milk is, it will cuddle, the moment you add the tart pineapple juice. However if you are fine with the creamy cuddled milk, you are just fine.










 

Pineapplie Rava Kesari

Ingredients Needed:

Semolina / Rava - 1 cup
Milk - 1 & 1/2 cup
Pineapple pieces - 1 cup
Pineapple Juice - 3/4 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Cardamom a pinch
Cashew nuts and Raisins - 5 each
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Yellow food colour a pinch

How to make the Pineapple Kesari

In a non stick pan, heat ghee and roast the cashews, raisins till done. Remove the nuts, add the semolina and roast well. Remove and keep aside one done.

Now to the pan, add the milk and bring to boil. Simmer and add the pineapple juice, pieces along with food colour. Simmer for couple of minutes. Then add the rava and mix well. It will take about 6 - 7 mins for the rava to get cooked.

Then add the sugar and cardamon. Combine everything well.

Simmer and continue cooking for another 5 mins.

Finally add the roasted dry fruits along with ghee, mix everything well and remove


Notes:

As I have mentioned, the milk will tend to cuddle because of the tartness in pineapple. Simply use water if you want to avoid that.

Adjust sugar and ghee as per your paste.

Srivalli said...

Anon Sorry you got scoldings, however if you had taken time to read both the pre recipe and notes, I have clearly mentioned that you will have the risk of cuddling the milk. You should handle that carefully.
