Pineapple pulissery is a curd based curry or gravy, which is again to be eaten with rice. We…. in Karnataka do curd curry and saasive which are also a curd based curry (majjige paldya/huli) r gravy. So this pulissery is the mix of Karnataka’s both curd curry and saasive. And as I have mentioned many a times earlier, I’m the biggest fan of pineapple and I don’t want to miss any dish prepared using pineapple. So obviously this recipe grabbed my attention. There are some other Kerala recipes are there using pineapple, I shall try out all of them one by one. I followed Simple Indian recipes post, submitted by Dahlia
