Pulissery is a traditional Kerala sweet and sour dish made with fruits or vegetables like mango, pineapple or ripe plantains (nendra pazham) and ashgourd, cooked in a yogurt and coconut gravy. There is another variation to this which is made without any vegetables or fruits. Pulissery is one of the dishes served as a part of the sadya menu.
Today I'm sharing the recipe of pulissery with pineapple. The sweetness from the pineapple, heat from the green chillies and sourness from the yogurt gives this curry a unique flavor. It doesn't take much time to put together this dish and can be served with rice and any thoran/mezhukkupuratti (stir-fry) of your choice. This is another simple dish that you can try for the ona sadya.
Wishing all my friends and readers a very Happy and Prosperous Onam! Enjoy a wonderful sadya!
Notes and Tips
- If your pineapple is sweet, you can skip the jaggery or adjust it according to the sweetness of your pineapple.
- Do not boil after adding the curd, it will curdle.
- I have used fresh pineapple here. You can also use canned ones, but drain them and wash well.
