Pineapple Kesari [Low fat, sugar free]



It is very hard to find healthy and tasty desserts. So I altered the original Pineapple kesari recipe to fit in healthy recipe column. But this one is not shy in taste. It is simple and easy as well. So enjoy your dessert guilt free :-) .

For Pineapple kesari [4 servings]

Rawa – 1 cup
Crushed pineapple – 1 cup
Splenda (Sugar substitute) – 1.5 cups
Ghee/Butter – ½ tbsp
Water – 2 cups
Kesar (Saffron) – ½ tsp (dissolve in water)
Cardamom powder – ½ tsp
Kismis (Golden raisins) – ¼ cup
Cashews – ¼ cup coarsely chopped


  • Dissolve saffron strands or Kesar in 2 cups of water.
  • In a pan, add ½ tbsp of Ghee/butter. Add rawa and dry roast it on medium low temperature, till it releases rich aroma. It will look light golden in color.
  • Add crushed pineapple and splenda to the pan and mix well. Immediately add the saffron water, while stirring continuously or it will be lumpy.
  • Add kismis, cashews and cardamom powder to it and mix well.
  • Cook for another 2-3 minutes and pineapple kesari is done.
Serving Suggestion:
Serve warm with your favorite ice-cream as a dessert after dinner.
