This has an awesome flavour of pineapple.I have posted recipe for pineapple kesari before where ripe and crushed fruit was directly
added in the preparation.
In this new and innovated recipe I have added the pineapple pieces after it is slightly fried in ghee.This way the pineapple flavour is
predominant and the taste is fantastic.
So do give it a try and post in your comments and suggestions!
1 cup roasted rawa (sooji, semolina,)
3/4 cup -1 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped pineapple pieces
few cashewnuts and raisins
1/2 tsp cardamon powder
1/2 tsp pineapple essence (optional )
1/2 cup ghee ( you could add more if you like )
1/4 tsp salt
1.5 cups water
a pinch of edible camphor (optional)
Heat a little ghee first and roast the pineapple till you see the edges turning light brown.
Roast the nuts and set aside.
Add water in the same pan and allow a boil .Add the rawa into the boiling water with salt .
Lower the flame, cover and allow to cook.When you see the sooji swelled up ,add the rest of the ingredients .
The mixture will turn watery (as the sugar melts).Keep mixing till thick .
Add a little more ghee (1-2 tbsp)after removing from fire.
Note:The kesari tasted more good the next day !
