How to make Pineapple Pachadi?

Pineapple Pachadi Recipe | Madhura Curry | with step by step photos and video. Deliciously sweet-sour tasting dish made with pineapple, coconut, mustard seeds, and curd. The recipe comes from Kerala cuisine.

The flavors of pineapple pachadi are complex with a sweet, sour & tangy taste, with a blend of flavors. There is also some pungency from the ground mustard seeds and a bit of heat and spiciness coming from the green chilies. The highlight of this pachadi is the sweetness of coconut and the sourness of curd. The tempering of mustard and dry red chilies in coconut oil adds another dimension in the taste.
