Pineapple Payasam/Pineapple Prathaman

I wish all my readers a happy and prosperous onam.


Onasadhya is an inevitable part of Onam. Traditionally sadhya is served on a banana leaf with more than 10 vegetarian dishes and no sadhya is complete without a payasam.Normally I prepare semiya payasam, but this time I tried a different one with pineapple and sabudana,Hope you all love this yummy payasam.



  1. Pineapple(ripe/crushed) – 1 cup
  2. Jaggery – 150 gms (6-7 blocks)
  3. Sabudana(chowari/Sago/Tapioca Pearls) – 1/4 cup
  4. Coconut Milk(thick) – 1 cup
  5. Ghee – 5 tbsp
  6. Milk –1/4 cup
  7. Raisins -10
  8. Cashew nuts – 10



  1. Soak sabudana in hot water for 5 minutes and boil with little milk till it becomes transparent.
  2. Dissolve jaggery in 1 cup of water.To make syrup,Boil the jaggery mix on medium flame for 10 minutes. Strain to remove impurities.
  3. Heat a pan and add jaggery syrup and crushed pineapple to it.Stir on medium flame till pineapple gets mixed with the jaggery approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Once it is done,add boiled sabudana and 3tbsp ghee to it and stir.Once it becomes thick, add coconut milk to it and mix well.
  5. Finally add boiled milk to it and mix.
  6. If you want a thick payasam,you can add cornflour mixed with milk to it.
  7. Heat the remaining ghee in a pan and fry cashews and raisins till light brown.
  8. Garnish with raisins and cashews.
  9. Serve warm.
