Pineapple Kesari

Pineapple recipe #3: Kesari/ Sooji Halwa. Ever since my childhood for any occasion be it a birthday or anniversary or a special guest at home or diwali or whatever, We’ve indulged in kesari for breakfast as a dessert. Though the orange colored, elaichi flavored, glossy version is the regular back home, I’ve shared the pineapple kesari here with absolute natural color and flavor.
