Pineapple Pachadi or Kaithachakka Pachadi is an important part of Kerala Onam Sadya a sweet and tangy yogurt/curd based curry with a tropical punch, yet so traditional and healthy and so easy to make.
I know, you must be frowning why pineapple pachachi now?? Thiruvonam just breezed by and most of us are back to our daily routine (or so!). Well, I did plan to post this much before Onam; but then if everything goes the way we planned, life would have been so easy! This recipe was destined to share after Onam and so I let destiny take its course as it did with me.
I am sure most of you had a wonderful Onam with friends and family and I hope you did try out my Pazham Pradham (banana payasam); and yes, you do not have to wait for onam to make payasam....for me it does not!
Pineapple pachadi, is one of the easiest and quickest side dish, you can make in about 15 minutes, bachelors are you listening??
I used half a pineapple and chopped them and put them to cook, while it was getting done, I grinded the coconut and mixed into it along with curd and then gave a tadka or seasoning with coconut oil. This is so easy that I did not take any step by step picture, but still if you would like that, please go through the Vellarikka Pachadi, I shared some time back.
