Spicy pineapple curry

1 pinee

The year is coming to an end and it has been a sweet, hot, sour, bitter and salty year with a lot of tears all around the world. I tried to make my year a little spicy and sizzling but I am not sure how successful I was!

Thinking of sweet and sour and spicy this Pine apple spicy curry comes to my mind. Pineapple with yogurt is the only curry I made for quite some time and it became repetitive and monotonous after a while. So I gave a twist to Pineapple Thai curry with a fusion of some home ingredients and surprisingly it turned out to be a crowd pleaser. My party guests approved it and wanted to try it. Here is the recipe for those who became a fan of this curry.


  • 1  pineapple – medium size cut into small pieces
  • 1 tsp sambar powder/curry powder
  • 1tsp garam masala
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • a pinch cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • Salt as needed
