Rawa /sooji                        1cup


pineapple                            1cup    (finely chopped)


Sugar                                    3/4th cup


water                                    3 cups


cashews, raisins                 4 tbsp


kesar                                     a few strands    (soaked in warm water)


yellow food colour.            2drops (optional)


cardamom powder            1/4th tsp

ghee                                     1/4thcup






  1. Boil the pineapple pieces with water for 5-6minutes. Remove from flame and keep aside.
  2. Heat ghee, roast the dry fruits lightly and keep aside.
  3. In the same oil roast rawa till you get a nice aroma…Rawa colour will be changed slightly.
  4. Add cardamom powder and mix well.
  5. Add water mixed with pineapples chunks and stir continuously.
  6. Add saffron soaked in warm water and nuts,  keep stirring.
  7. Add sugar and keep stirring. It will be slightly watery.
  8. Stir till Kesari leaves sides of the pan. It’s ready to serve now.



  1. Kesar itself gives a nice colour to this dish.
  2. Quantity of sugar depends on sweetness of pineapple.If pineapple is less sweet you can increase the amount of sugar.
  3. I like nuts to be served top of the Kesari. You can do the same.



Cooking is my passion.i love to play with myriad tastes of spices . I belong to a odiya family by birth but marriade to a bengoli person.the crash of cultures between two families induced me to cook innovatively so as to make everyone happy.
