Pineapple kesari is my all time favourite!! Whenever I see pineapple I can’t stop myself making either pineapple rasam or kesari. Pineapple kesari is so delectable and luscious. Pineapple kesari can be served anytime along with breakfast or as dessert after meal. In South Indian marriages pineapple kesari is a must for breakfast along with idly/dosa/upma/pongal.Here I present juicy and mouth melting hot pineapple kesari to relish on any day.
