Pineapple Kesari | Annasi Pazham Kesari

Pineapple Kesari
Pineapple is a tropical fruit and widely used in Indian cooking. Pineapple is rich in minerals and vitamins.Pineapple is used in fruit salads, sweets, jams, ice cream,  gravies and also as a pizza topping.A twist to regular semolina kesari. I have used fresh pineapple for preparing this Kesari.  It can be served as a snacks to kids or as an dessert.

  • Stir continuously while adding sooji otherwise lumps will be formed. 
  • I haven't used any food colour for this kesari. The colour of the kesari is from fresh pineapple pieces. If you are not using fresh pineapple pieces, then add little food colour.
