Yet another Pineapple recipe ! mouth watering pineapple chutney, which is an addition to many other kinds of chutney recipes on my blog.

In this recipe we use grated sweet & sour (more sour and less sweet) pineapple, few spices, healthy herbs like fenugreek seeds & curry leaves powder along with fresh coconut, Overall it is a bitter, tangy, spicy, sweet & sour chutney recipe. It tastes good with all the types of flat bread, dosay, Idly but tastes best when eaten mixed with rice.  If not using the whole quantity immediately, you can refrigerate it up to 1 week (I haven’t kept it more than a week).
