Pineapple Halwa

Posted on February 26th, 2009

I have tasted pineapple kesari on many occasions at various functions and festivals in India. I tried a different recipe “Pineapple Halwa” that I had never tasted before. The recipe came out very well and tasted yummy too. Here is the pineapple halwa recipe.

Pineapple Halwa

Pineapple Halwa


Pineapple (cut into cubes): 2 cups
Condensed milk: 100 gms
Cardamom powder: ¼ tbsp
Cashews: few
Ghee: ¼ cup

Preparation Method:

  • Pressure cook the pineapple without adding water for 2 whistles.
  • Smash the cooked pineapple.
  • Add the condensed milk and cardamom powder.
  • Keep the mixture in low flame and stir continuously.
  • Add ghee little by little.
  • Keep stirring till the mixture solidifies.
  • Heat ghee and fry the nuts.
  • Garnish the pineapple halwa with the nuts.


  • You can add sugar, depending on the sweetness of the fruit.
  • Khoa can be used instead of condensed milk.

    Kudos to you yet again! Simple, time saving dishes I bet! And you seem to also ever factor in the health aspects (I observe your dishes dont suggest much of fatteners and stuff)…

    Good consultancy from you honorary!!!

    Appreciate your scrawls!

      Thanks a lot!! Your words are real motivators. Yes I love jiffy cooking :) I hate standing in kitchen for a long time! Wow…Gr8 analysis about me not using the fatty substances. I think i have inherited it from my dad. Amma has to cook carefully without using too much oil/ghee :-D

      The other day I was asking Ganesha that how come I have been using 500ml of olive oil for more than a month.. Ganesha replied in his own witty way “Samaiyalla konjam yennaium kattanum ma”!!! Funny but true! Thanks to the non-stick cookware, I have stuck to one-spoon-oil cooking :)
