Pineapple Raitha

       Our first meeting with Pineapple Raitha, was at a restaurant in a small town, tucked away in rural Maharashtra,India . It was love at first sight! This  simple rustic homey place was situated by the fields  and used all the produce that they grew, farm fresh eggs, poultry, veggies and  exotic fruits like figs. The food used to be fresh and flavorful beyond words! 

         So far we have not been able to replicate that taste and flavor and we usually blame it on the pineapple!;-) but you and we know better....some dishes just cannot be the same !

 So until our next trip there ....we make do with this recipe.....

Ingredients: serves 4

Fresh or canned pineapple chunks: 1&1/2 cup
Yogurt: plain 3-4 cups
Sugar: 1-2 tbsp
Salt: to taste
Red chili Powder: 1 tsp
Cumin powder: 1 tsp
Chaat Masala: ½ tsp (optional)

In a bowl whip yogurt, sugar, salt, ½ tsp red chili powder, ½ tsp cumin powder and chaat masala till it is nice and creamy. Mix in the pineapple chunks and garnish with the rest of red chili powder, cumin powder and finely chopped cilantro. Serve chilled. Pineapple raita goes very well with spicy curries and biryani.
