Pineapple Pachadi


Pineapple pachadi is an exotic dish and part of the traditional Kerala Sadhya. It is a unique dish, and a mouthwatering delicacy which is sweet and tart,a combo of pineapple, coconut and curd. There are different versions in different regions and one of my favorite is pineapple mathura pachadi . Here is two other versions which tastes equally delicious.

Ingredients
Pineapple chopped- 2 cup
yogurt- 1/2 cup
Coconut- 1/2 cup
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder-a pinch
Green chilly - 2 
Sugar- 1 tsp
Salt as per taste
Mustard seeds- 1/2tsp
Curry leaves


Cook pineapple with turmeric powder, chilly powder, salt and sugar and a 1/3 cup of water till pineapple is completely cooked and can be easily mashed up. Grind coconut and green chilly into a fine paste and mix in yogurt and blend. Add this mixture into the cooked pineapple and stir till is warmed up. Do not allow to boil. 
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add one red chilly and curry leaves and pour this mixture and oil on the pineapple curry. Serve with rice.
