Pineapples is undoubtedly my fav fruit. This is one of my unique dish I have ever tasted. 'Pineapple menaska'  its one of the simplest and flavourful dish with the combination of spicy, sweet and tangy in taste. I have also noticed that in karnataka, it is served during  family get together or at wedding ceremony too. U must be all waiting for the ingredients so heres it is


1 cup Cubed pineapple pieces.

1/4 Cup Coconut grated.

3 Cube of Jaggery. Or as per ur sweetness.

4 Kashmiri red chillies.

1/2 tsp Coriander seeds.

2 tsp Urad dal.

1/2 tsp Sesame seeds.

1 tsp Tamarind extract.

1 tsp Oil.

Salt to taste.

Water as needed.


1 tbsp Oil.

1 tsp Mustard seeds.

Few curry leaves.


Heat 1 tsp oil of pan. Roast red chilly, sesame seeds, urad dal and coriander seeds separately and grind all together with grated coconut and keep it side.

Boil chopped pineapple pieces with salt and water. When it gets cooked up, add the grounded masala and jaggery and make it a boil adding tamarind extract too. Add water according to ur consistency. Remove and serve them into a bowl. Season them with mustard and curry leaves
on top and serve hot hot.
