Pineapple pachadi. A sweet and spicy combo of pineapples cooked in a spicy sauce made with coconut and yogurt. Add a finishing touch with tempered spices, and serve over a bed of rice.
Have you ever tried pineapple in a curry? Sounds pretty interesting, right?
On one side, you’ve the spicy flavours of the curry. On the other side, you’ve the sweetness of the pineapple. No wonder this curry is so unique and scrumptious.
For those who are not familiar with pachadi, it’s a traditional dish from Kerala (India), and is a combination of vegetables or fruits in spicy yogurt sauce.
Pineapple pachadi is a very popular dish and is usually made for Onam feast (the harvest festival of Kerala). Like beetrootpachadi I posted few weeks ago, this curry is also simple and very easy to make. And of course, an amazing way to enjoy pineapples!
