This is the final week of Blogging Marathon #25. Srivalli gave us three letters and the three recipes we choose must start from the given letter. It may be any language. For the first day the letter is K. I went through so many recipes for K and finally I decided our classical sweet Kesari. Though I have already posted different varieties of kesari, this one is special. Nowadays every in marriage funtion the caterers serve fruit based kesari. I have seen so many recipes for pineapple kesari in the web but they all use pineapple juice instead of water. So I decided to add fresh pineapple slices into kesari so that it resembles the kesari served at marriages. I also added a tsp of pineapple essence and so the kesari was brimming with pineapple flavour. The chunks added a nice bite to the soft kesari. The more you add ghee the flavourful and soft the kesari will be. I have also added some oil which increases the softness of kesari.
