PINEAPPLE PACHADI

Pineapple Pachadi is very special and sweet dish and it is mostly preparing for Onam celebration. This is essential to the traditional celebrations. We can make both sweet and sweet less Pachadi in different ways. This is completely a Kerala style traditional dish and it contains both sweet and sour taste. It is not only for Onam and Vishu but also for Hindu Wedding and Birthday celebrations. It has a lot of similarities with Mambazha Pulissery. I made this dish with a pineapple that was in my house. With very little ingredients, we can prepare this curry very easily. Before this I had prepared a variety of sweet Pachadi using many ingredients. Pineapple pachadi is very sweet to eat because of its pleasant smell. The biggest attraction of this dish is its pleasant smell.
