Pineapple Achar/Pickle



Pineapple Achar/Pickle

If you love sweet and spicy pickles like grapes and dates,then you are surely going to love this pickle. It is a sweet and spiced pineapple pickle/preserve. It is a tart,sweet and savory combo that will complement any meal. This is my mother-in law's recipe .Hubby like me is  fan of anything  made with pineapples. It is delicious and the flavor and taste is irresistible. If you wish to retain the color of pineapples  you can use crushed dry red chilly or green chilly instead of chilly powder.Try this,you will surely love it.

Ingredients
Pineapple chopped- 2 cups
Garlic- 6-8 cloves
Green Chilly- 3-4(optional)
Curry leaves a few
Mustard- 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 2 tsp
(adjust according to your taste)
Fenugreek powder- 1/2 tsp
Asofetida-1/3 tsp
Salt as needed
Sugar- 3 tsp
Vinegar- 2 tsp


Cut pineapple into small pieces. Mix with sugar and salt and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
Strain out the liquid into a separate bowl. Bring this to a boil and add vinegar. Allow this to cool.
In a pan heat oil ( 3-4 tbs) and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add sliced garlic,curry leaves and green chilly and saute till the raw flavor disappears. Reduce the flame and add the dry powders and mix. Add the pineapple and pineapple juice and vinegar mixture. Mix well and allow to cool and transfer into air tight jar.

Try this
Hope you will all enjoy
