Pineapple Pulissery | Pineapple Pachadi | Pulissery Recipe

Pineapple Pulissery, a modern twist to the traditional pulissery. Pulissery, a delicious and creamy curd based curry from Kerala and it's made with both vegetables (like ash gourd, pumpkin) and fruits like( mango, pineapple). It's one of the common dish in Onam Sadya menu.

This can be prepared as curry or as a accompaniment based on the consistency. Today i have prepared as accompaniment for our meal, it tastes good with rice & any spicy curry. In our home ,we often prepare thadiyanakai kootu, this recipe sounds so similar to that, instead of ash gourd, pineapple is used in this recipe. 

Whenever i try any kerala recipe, it sounds so familiar to what we cook back in my home town,Tiruneveli, to be precisely saying, in our family, the cooking style  is so similar to what we call now as "Kerala cuisine" more than the "Tamil cuisine".  After all ,all this state partition happened after independence, but even before that people have their way of cooking, right?? With that thought, let's check out the pineapple pulissery recipe.
