pineapple halwa recipe pineapple halwa recipe | pineapple delight recipe | pineapple sweet or meetha with step by step photo and video recipe. corn flour-based sweets have become very popular and common sweet desserts across india. traditionally it is prepared with just cornflour and sugar combination but it has been subject to many variations by adding extra flavouring agents. one such easy and simple fruit-based delight recipe is the pineapple halwa recipe known particularly for its sweet and sour taste it has to offer.

the last time when i posted carrot delight, i got so many requests and comments about a fruit-based delight. there were so many options but i wasn’t sure what to post next. i thought of posting mango, orange or even apple flavoured delight but wanted something special. well, there isn’t anything special about pineapple, but the taste it has to offer is very unique. particularly, the combination of sweet and sour taste makes it one of the best dessert recipes. moreover, the colour of the fruit makes it one of the bright coloured and appetising dessert recipes. to make it more bright i have added yellow food colour, which is completely optional.

furthermore, i would also like to add some additional tips, suggestions and variations to the pineapple halwa recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend using fresh, tender and juicy pineapple for this recipe. it adds the required amount of sweetness, sourness and flavour to the dessert. secondly, the dessert preparation involves a lot of stirring and mixing to get the right consistency. there is no shortcut to it and stirring it patiently makes it a perfect dessert. lastly, you may keep this dessert in the refrigerator for 2-3 days easily. you may need to reheat or microwave it for 30 seconds so that ghee would melt and make it an ideal dessert.

notes:

  • firstly, make sure to filter out the pineapple pulp from the juice, else the halwa will not be glossy.
  • also, adding ghee is optional. however, it will give a nice glossy shine.
  • additionally, make sure to keep stirring else the mixture will stick to the pan and burn.
  • finally, pineapple delight or pineapple halwa turns hard if overcooked and sticky if undercooked.

    Excellent. Thinking if other fruit can be also used for change. Mango pulp, peaches, apple sauce (w/walnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon). More ideas?
    Would artificial sweeteners work instead of sugar?
    How to store it and for how long?
    Thank you for your recipes.
