Rawa / semolina
Cashew & Raisins
yellow food colour (kesari colour)
Ghee (clarified butter)
Boil the pineapple pieces with 1/4th cup of water for 5-6minutes till they turns soft. Remove from flame and keep aside.
Heat tbsp of ghee, roast the dry fruits lightly and keep aside.
In the same pan roast rawa till you get a nice aroma.Rawa colour will be changed slightly. Remove and set aside.
Boil 3 cups of water with the pineapple chunks. Add cardamom powder and mix well.
When water boils gradually add rawa and stir continuously. cook for 3-4 minutes .
Add sugar and keep stirring. It will be slightly watery.
Cover the pan and stir occasionally to avoid sticking to the bottom.
Add rest of the ghee and keep stirring till kesari leaves side of the pan.
Add fried dry fruits and serve immediately.
Kesar itself gives a nice colour to this dish. yo u can add kesra instead of food colour.
Quantity of sugar depends on sweetness of pineapple.If pineapple is less sweet you can increase the amount of sugar.
I like nuts to be served top of the Kesari. You can do the same.
