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.

      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 :)
