Pineapple Paayasam

Yesterday was my hubby’s b’day. So I prepared this yummy payasam for the occasion. It tasted so good.


  • 2 cups Pineapple pieces (I used fresh)
  • ½ cup Vermicelli
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Sugar (can be increased if more sweetness is desired)
  • 1 tsp Ghee
  • Few Cashews, Cardamom Seeds and Raisins
  • Few strands of Saffron

Add pineapple pieces and sugar to a blender and grind into a soft pulp. No need to add water. Keep aside.

Dry roast vermicelli until it turns into golden brown in color and keep aside.

Boil milk in a bowl or pan. When it starts boiling, pour the fried vermicelli and water. Mix well and allow cooking for some time until vermicelli becomes soft and cooked.

Finally pour pineapple pulp into the vermicelli mixture, mix well and turn off the flame after 2 minutes.

In a different pan, heat ghee and add cashews + cardamom seeds + raisins and sauté well until cashews become golden brown in color and raisins bubble up. Pour this mixture on top of the prepared paayasam and mix well.

Enjoy this yummy paayasam at room temperature or chilled.
