Indian PIneapple Halwa Recipe

Hello friends,

 Love is in the air with Valentine's Day round the corner. So lets cook up something sweet. An Indian desserts this time, a halwa that is super special. I remember savouring Pineapple Halwa at a Bohri friends place. The sweet follows and savoury in a Bohri Thala and Pineapple Halwa was what I truly relished that day.

Recently,I tried to make a Pineapple Halwa recipe that turned out quite good. I have cut down on using ghee in my recipe.  Sharing the easy recipes with all of you. The halwa  is a very popular Indian sweet dish made with Rawa and pineapple. It tastes sweet and sour and has bits of chunky pineapple pieces, really enjoyable.


1 cup Semolina (Rawa)
3/4 cup Ghee
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
1 tsp powdered Cardamon (Elaichi)
1 cup chopped Pineapple
1 cup Pineapple Puree
A few nuts and Raisins


1. Heat half the ghee in a pan, when it is hot add one cup semolina and start roasting it.

2. Keep roasting on slow flame till the rawa turns brown and you get a good aroma. Turn off the gas and take out the semolina on a plate for using later.

3. In the same pan, add the pineapple puree and sugar and stir for 5 minutes.

4. Now add one cup pineapple pieces, cook the pineapple is soft and mushy.

5. Now add 2 cups water and bring to a boil. 

6. When the water boils, add the semolina back to the pan and mix it well. 

7. Add the cardamon powder to this mixture. 

8. Cook the halwa on low flame till the ghee leaves the side of pan. The mixture should be dry and rawa cooked through. 

9. Add the remaining ghee and roast for two minutes more. 

10. Garnish with chopped raisins and nuts.

11. Serve it hot or cold with a scoop of vanilla icecream.
