Last week I was going crazy for pineapples.Don't know why. I made pineapple rice,pineapple pachadi and also pineapple jam.heheee...

This pachadi is one of the Authentic kerala sadhya recipes. It is sweet and spicy at the same time. If you luv pineapple you have to try this recipe.This pachadi goes well with Rice.Will upload the jam recipe soon.


Pineapple chunks-20 oz can[You can also use fresh pineapples]

Sugar-1/4 cup

Water-1 cup

To grind:

Fresh grated coconut-3/4 cup
Green chillies-3-4

Salt-to taste


Mustard seeds- 1 tsp

Drain the juice from the pineapple and cook the

pineapple chunks with sugar and water until it

is soft.

Grind together coconut,green chillies,mustard

seeds and buttermilk to a smooth paste. If it

is too thick add 2 tbs of water when grinding.

powder to the cooked pineapple.
