pineapple payasam recipe with step by step photos – south indian payasam made with pineapple, coconut milk and jaggery.

pineapple payasam recipe

there are many varieties of payasam and pineapple payasam is one of them. the fruity pineapple flavor, the earthy flavor and taste of jaggery and the aroma of coconut milk, makes this dessert pretty unique. jaggery which is used as a sweetener in the recipe, can also be replaced by sugar. however, the flavors are better with jaggery.

use pineapple which is sweet and not sour. i always use fresh pineapple for desserts that i make. you can also use canned, but the fresh taste and flavors go very well in a dessert. chopping pineapple is not easy and i follow this method show here on youtube, which makes cutting pineapple a breeze for me. within 5 minutes i am done with the chopping.

please note that this recipe cannot be made with milk. the enzyme bromelain in pineapple will curdle the milk.

serve pineapple payasam as an after meal dessert. you can serve it hot, warm or chilled.

ingredients (1 cup = 250 ml)

  • 1 cup finely chopped pineapple or 200 grams pineapple without the peel
  • cup powdered or grated jaggery or 60 to 65 grams, add as per taste as the sweetness also depends on the sweetness of pineapple
  • cup water
  • 1 cup coconut milk 250 ml
  • 3 to 4 green cardamoms (choti elaichi) - crushed or ½ teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 12 to 15 cashews (kaju)

  9. then add powdered jaggery. here i used organic jaggery. but if you are using regular jaggery block, then you will have to melt the jaggery in warm water and filter to get rid of impurities. for this, heat 1/3 cup water and let it become warm. then add 1/3 cup powdered or grated jaggery. let the jaggery melt. filter this solution and add it at the next step.
  10. now add 1/3 cup water and stir well so that the jaggery dissolves.
