Pineapple Kesari

This Pineapple Kesari dessert uses only four ingredients and comes together in less than 30 minutes. This Kesari is made with fresh pineapple chunks so they have a bold pineapple flavour. You can also use canned pineapple chunks, but I have not tested this recipe with the canned pineapples. Have you noticed that all kesari dishes always require double the measure of sugar? That's the only thing I won't prefer to do these type of dishes frequently. Once in a while for special occasions or festivals, I prepare this kesari with a good amount of sugar and ghee. If we reduce the sugar and ghee it won't taste and look like kesari.
