Pineapple Pulisheri




Pineapple Pulisheri is another version of pulisheri. There are different versions like savory pulisheri made with ash gourd or sweet with mangoes. Pineapple pulisheri is a sweet and sour curry and has a wonderful flavor. This is my mom-in-laws recipe and also the first one she taught me. Back at my home my mom made only mango pulisheri. Both these pulisheri's have unique tastes and you will surely love this one too.

Ingredients
Pineapple- 250 grams/8 ounce can
Yogurt -1/2 ltr
Coconut- 1/2 cup
Green chilly - 2
Turmeric- 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek- 1/2 tsp
Ginger chopped- 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves
Salt to taste.
Oil- 2 tsp 



Dice pineapples into cubes. Grind coconut and ginger into a fine paste using very little water and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan and crackle mustard seeds and fenugreek.
Add green chilly and turmeric powder and saute a bit. Now add pineapple pieces,salt and 1/3 cup of water and close with a lid.
(or just cook the pineapple with turmeric powder and salt and do the tempering in the final stage)

When the pineapple is cooked add the coconut paste and simmer. Finally add yogurt and blend it with the curry. ( you can add 1/3 tsp of fenugreek powder also if you like ) Switch off when the curry is properly warmed up. Heat 1/2 tsp of oil and fry the curry leaves and pour over the pulisheri.
( My Mom-in law adds a pinch of chilli powder into the thadka oil just before switching off. She seems to love that color on top of the pulisheri . I too love it).

 

Try this..

Hope you will all enjoy!

You can also add egg in this recipe.Since most home did not have ovens in earlier days it was baked by closing lid tightly and  burning coconut shells and placing it on top and bottom.
