In the evening when I crossed the same shop saw all the pineapples neatly cleaned and packed in sealed zip locks. Hurray!!!. The aroma was just too much to just go past the shop turning a blind eye to them. As my job had been made so easy I bought one and headed home. My kids were so happy upon seeing how succulent the pineapples were. As the next day was first Friday of “Aadi” month I reserved half the fruit to make Kesari for prasadham and we all enjoyed the rest.
Though I wanted to make this kesari in the Microwave, the power went boom on the next day evening and I had to make do with the stove top. I will update this post later with the Microwave version.

|You can also use tinned pineapples instead of fresh ones.|
|If using tinned pineapples no need to mix them with sugar and rest them for an hour. Chop and use them directly.|
|You can also reduce the sugar amount and use the syrup if using tinned pineapples.|
|Always mix the essence 5-10 minutes after taking off the stove and it has cooled down considerably.|
|Adding the essence while cooking will give the sweet a bitter taste and you don’t want your efforts wasted.|
