Pineapple More Kuzhambu


Pineapple - 1 cup (i used canned pineapple chunks)
Curd - 2 cups well beaten
Grated coconut- 3tbsp
Rice-1 tspn(soaked in water)
Green chillies-2
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tspn
Chilli powder - 1/2tsp
Jeera - 1/2 tspn
Garlic-1 pod
Curry leaves - as needed
Mustard seeds - 1/2tsp
Urad dal - 1/2tsp
Red chillies - 3


Grind Coconut,rice,garlic,jeera and curry leaves into coarse paste.In a pan,cook pinapple chunks with turmeric and red chilli powder with just enough water.In the mean time, in a bowl, take about 2 cups of curd and add little water and beat well.Once the pineapples are almost cooked add the coconut paste and salt.Keep stirring to avoid lumps.Once the raw smell is fully gonme, reduce the heat to low.Now add curd into this and mix well.DO NOT LET IT BOIL.Just keep stirring until everything is well mixed and no raw smell is there.Switch off the heat.In another pan, heat oil and fry mustard,urad dal,curry leaves and red chillies.Pour this tadka into the pineapple more kuzhambu.That's it, serve hot with some spicy poriyal.This time i served it with Sandeepa's Spicy Egg Bake.

Tips:Any type of more kuzhambu tastes better the next day.For storing greenchillies,take out the stem part and store it in airtight container for longer life.
