Sweet Pineapple Pulao

For those of you with a sweet tooth and who crave something different all the time, this one is a must try.

I have always relished Pineapple Kesari made with Semolina and I was wondering why not a Pulao and that's how this dish turned out.


1 cup basmathi rice

1 ½ cups milk

½ cup water

300 gm sugar

1 cup chopped pineapple pieces

4 tbsp butter

3 cardamoms

3 cloves

1” piece cinnamon

3 tbsp cashew nuts

3 tbsp raisins

1/2 tsp pineapple emulsion


1. Cook the pineapple with ½ cup sugar & 1 cup water for 5 minutes

2. Drain the pineapple & add remaining sugar to the syrup

3. Cook on low flame until it reaches 2 string consistency

4. Remove & add pineapple pieces, emulsion

5. Keep aside & heat 1 tbsp butter & add cashew & fry till pale in colour

6. Add the raisins & fry till they bloat

7. Remove & keep aside

8. Wash & soak the rice for 10 minutes & drain well

9. Heat 2 tbsp butter & fry the whole garam masala till pale brown

10. Add rice & stir for 2-3 minutes

11. Pour milk & water into a rice cooker & bring to boil

12. Add rice & cook till the cooker reaches keep warm mode

13. Mix in the pineapple mixture & dot with butter

14. Stir gently & set to cook mode once again

15. Cook for 10 minutes. Sprinkle fried cashew & raisins. Mix lightly & serve hot
