Pineapple Sheera | Pineapple Pal Kesari

Pineapple kesari is a common dessert that is served in south Indian weddings especially for breakfast or evening tiffin. This pineapple sheera has a unique flavor to it as it is pal kesari/milk kesari with pineapple flavour! It also requires lesser sugar compared to the regular kesari but make sure that you chose ripe pineapple that is not sour. 


  • Pineapple puree - 1 cup
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Rava/Semolina - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 3/4th - 1 cup (can be increased according to your taste)
  • Ghee - 2 Tbsp
  • Cardamom powder - 1/2 Tsp
  • Yellow color - 1/4 Tsp

For garnish:

  • Cashew nuts - 4 to 5 (each split into two)
  • Raisins - 1 Tsp


  1. Add a Tbsp of sugar to the pineapple puree and cook it on a medium flame for a few minutes stirring continuously. Keep aside
  2. Heat 1 Tbsp of ghee in a heavy bottomed kadai and add rava to it. Roast it for 5 minutes till a good aroma arises
  3. Add milk, 2 cups of water, stirring continuously to avoid any lumps. Cook for 3 minutes
  4. Once the rava starts absorbing the milk, add sugar, mix well and cook further for a minute or two
  5. Add the puree and color. Mix very well and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the remaining ghee
  6. In the end add cardamom powder and remove from heat after a minute
  7. Garnish with roasted cashew nuts and raisins
