Diwali is around the corner, so wondering what sweets to make for this festival of lights? There you go... This pineapple halwa is incredibly rich and delicious. It has an ooey-gooey texture that literally melts in your mouth.

The warm pineapple halwa looks bright, glossy, and vibrant as well. It is a  unique dessert where you can try for any festival or party. Make sure you choose a well-ripened and sweet pineapple. This recipe cannot be made with frozen or canned pineapples.

Pineapple halwa is an Indian sweet made with pineapple puree, ghee, sugar, cardamom/elaichi, saffron/kesar, and cashews. The ingredients and procedure are so simple and straightforward. Saffron gives a natural tint to the halwa, which is a treat to the eyes, and elaichi is added to flavor the halwa.

Infact, I have not used any milk, khoya, condensed milk, semolina/sooji/rava, or cornflour in this recipe. These ingredients are added for richness and to thicken the halwa. This pineapple halwa recipe can be prepared in numerous ways; I will soon post different versions on my blog.

Besides, this halwa tastes and appears quite different from the pineapple rava Kesari, a popular delicacy in the Southern part of India. In Karnataka, it is called pineapple Kesari bath, and in Tamilnadu, it is referred to as pineapple pudding. The kesari version contains rava and pineapple as the main ingredient.

Pineapple halwa
is a must-try dessert if you are a pineapple lover. 
I'm a huge fan of pineapples, so I frequently incorporate this tropical fruit into my menu in many ways.

In Indian cuisine, pineapples are utilized in many ways, such as salads, curries, subzis, rasam, sweets, etc. This halwa tasted so appetizing when eaten hot/warm. It can be stored outside for 3 days and stays good for 1 to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Sugar - 1 to 1.5 cups
Cashews - 15
Saffron - A pinch is soaked in a tbsp of warm water
Salt - A pinch
Elaichi/Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp

Notes:

1. Choose a fresh, sweet, and well-ripened pineapple. Saffron is added for a hue; it is an optional ingredient.

2. Frozen or canned pineapples do not work for this recipe.

3. You may need more sugar if the pineapples are sour. So, adjust sugar as per the sweetness or tartness of the fruit.

4. Ghee is a vital ingredient in any halwa. You have to pour generously if you want a scoopable consistency and glossy-looking halwa.

5. You can add slivered almonds and raisins too. And a pinch of salt is added to balance the sweetness.

How to make pineapple halwa:


1. Firstly,  clean and remove the outer layer and core of the pineapple.

2. Secondly, roughly chop them into small pieces.

3. Thirdly, grind the pineapple chunks in a blender without adding water. Make it a puree. 

4. Then, heat a tbsp of ghee in a heavy-bottomed pan or Kadai. Roast the cashews until golden brown on a low flame and keep them aside.

5. In the same pan, pour the pineapple puree.

6. Cook the puree on a low medium flame for about 15 minutes. Keep stirring often, and do not cover it with a lid.

7. Cook until the moisture in the pineapple puree is evaporated.

8. The moisture is completely evaporated, and the pineapple puree looks smooth.

9. At this stage, add the required amount of sugar. Combine it well, and the flame should be medium to low.

10. Pour the saffron-infused water and keep stirring.

11. Cook the mixture and pour ghee in regular intervals. 

12. The mixture absorbs a lot of ghee. 

13. It should take 15 mins to form a halwa consistency. 

14. Now add the roasted cashews and combine. It forms a smooth semi-solid mass.

15. Lastly, turn off the flame once the ghee is absorbed and the mixture becomes semi-solid consistency. (Note- The halwa solidifies once it cools down).  

16. Immediately remove the pineapple halwa from heat and transfer it to a bowl. 

17. Halwa thickens once it cools down. You can see the texture in the picture.

18. Warm up in the microwave for 30 seconds or slightly heat the halwa in the pan before you serve.
