Pineapple Kesari


Rawa (Semonila) - 1 cup
Sugar - 1cup
Water - 2cups

Milk - 1/2cup
Cardamon - 2 nos
Cashewnuts, Raisins - Few
Yellow Food color - 1/4 tsp
Pineapple essence - 1/2 tsp
Ghee - 1/4 Cup


Keep  pan on gas and add ghee to it. Add cleaned and broken cashew nuts and roast.When cashew nuts turn light brown add cleaned raisins also. when done remove nuts and raisins from the ghee and keep aside.

To this ghee itself add rawa and roast for 5 min.Keep on stirring so that it won't get burned.Also keep medium flame.only if the rava is roasted properly will the kesari taste good.otherwise it will be sticky sticky...

 Side by side in an another vessel keep 2 cups water and boil.Mix the food color in water.Pour this water into the roasted rawa and stir again .stir well by breaking lumps,if any.

Also add sugar and milk and stir well. Add sugar only if the rawa is only cooked properly.Else, sugar stops rawa from getting cooked.

Add 1/2 tsp Pineapple essence and some nuts and raisins also. As you stir you will see the kesari starts leaving it sides and rolling with the spatula. Remove from fire. 

Grease a bowl with ghee and spread nuts and raisins on it. Put the pineapple kesari to this bowl.

Spread evenly with a spoon.cover with another vessal.

Turn upside down.And there come pine apple k-sari. cut it into desired shapes.

And serve.........:)
