This is another recipe from my cooking session in Kovalam in Kerala. My scribbled notes have recently come to light again – Chef cooked and I helped and observed and tried desperately to copy down the recipes.
This recipe can be made with okra, Indian cucumber, green mango and plantain (green banana), but today we use pineapple. It is easy to make, and so very delicious – I am sure that you will love it.
Pineapple Pulissery is a delicate dish with aromatic flavours of mustard seed, cumin seed and curry leaves with chilli and black pepper. It is from Kerala, that beautiful tropical state on the West Coast of India. Pineapple curry is also a traditional dish from the Sri Lankan cuisine, and there it is also a delightful sweet and spicy curry.
Are you looking for other Pineapple dishes? We don’t cook with it very often so don’t have anything to offer you right now. But check back here in the future – I am sure there will be more.

Oh the joys of Indian snacks, of that (often) deep fried combo of flavours, of the special chutneys and spices, the lip smacking, breath-taking joy that goes on and on and on.
Bhajji is truly tremendous. I made today’s afternoon nosh with potato, eggplant (brinjal), red capsicum and onion. I thoroughly recommend this, eaten in the sunshine with a cool ale or iced tea, and friends.
It is accompanied with fresh mango cheeks with chaat masala. Bhajji can be served as breakfast, snacks or as an appetiser. I like to accompany it with diced fruit, a green salad or kachumber.
