To make this absolutely mouth watering Pineapple Pachadi all you need to do is In a grinder add coconut, green chili, cumin and mustard seeds. Grind to make a fine paste and keep aside. Heat a non stick pan and add pineapple chunks along with sugar or jaggery. Stir and saute for a minute. Add water, stir again and close lid to cook till pineapple softens. Now add turmeric powder, mix well and turn off the flames. Whisk the curd or yogurt to break lumps. Keep it thick, do not add water. Pour in the whisked yogurt to the cooked pineapple and combine. Add salt to taste and keep aside. Now heat oil in another pan and temper with mustard seeds, curry leaves and broken red chili. When the tempering begins to crackle, turn off the gas flames and pour on the pineapple yogurt mix. Your Pineapple Pachadi is ready to serve.
