Instructions
  1. Boil the pineapple pieces in a thick bottom pan, along with a little water.
  2. When the pineapple is done, add the ghee and fry it well.
  3. Add sugar and fry.
  4. :- Make sure that there is no crumbs or lumps.
  5. When it is nicely done, add the third extract of the milk and boil it.
  6. Add the second extract followed by the first extract.
  7. When the first extract begins to boil, add the washed chowari.
  8. When the chowari is cooked and payasam is nicely done, remove from flame.
  9. Add the fried cashewnuts and raisins.
  10. Sprinkle the powdered ingredients and mix well.
  11. Close the pan with a lid to keep the yummy flavour
  12. :- 1) If u r using tinned coconut milk, avoid the three steps of extract milk. simply mix one cup water to the first tin of coconut milk and dilute it. Add this to the fried pineapples. When it starts to boil, add the second tin of coconut milk. 2) I normally add one cup water to one tin coconut milk to dilute it. But u can use more or less according to the thickness and quality of the milk.

there`s a much easier as well as tastier way of making pineapple payasam ;instead of coconut milk boil the chauvary or sabudana & sugar in cow`s milk and let it cool.In a separate vessel boil the pineapple pieces with sugar and let it cool too.Mix both.Finally add the fried cashew and raisins,cardamom powder & one table spoon condensed milk & voila the payasam is ready!!

Lip Smacking. My husband has asked me to make it everytime guests arrive. I used canned pineapple and boiled it in its juices, adds to the flavour. This is one of a kind recipe.Thanks for posting it.

A 10 for sure!! Few things i did-I used the crushed pineapple in cans and i used the juice it came in to boil the pineapples. One word of advice, adding the coconut milk can curdle if the heat is too high, so after adding sugar, you must lower the heat and stir constantly! On the other hand: My mom didnt want to use coconut milk so she made it without it, and it was a different payasam, but just as good! Keep bringing on the excellent recipes!

really tasty. I took long time to cook all sabhudhana (50 gms). 2 box coconut milk was absorbed by sabhudana & payasam was very thick. I added more coconut milk at the end. I think only 25gm of sabhudhana is required for a medium sized pineapple and it should be half cooked in water before putting it in the payasam. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

I was a little apprehensive to try it since the main ingredient of the payasam is pineapple…but now i think i could have missed this superb dessert if i didn`t try this..a BIG TWO THUMPS- UP!!!!!!!!

Thanks. I tried this payasam on Vishu. I had many guests and everyone liked this new receipe. If it is difficult to get rid of crumbs and lumps then after boiling the pinapple u can mash it in the mixi and then add sugar. It was very sweet and thick so I added 1 glass of water also.

the recipe looks grt. wud like to try it asap. well, regarding Nimmy`s question as to wht this Chowari is, it is nothing but Sabudana in Hindi. it is also called Sago in English. Thanks for such a tempting recipe.
