Pineapple Menaskaayi

Menaskaayi is a popular Madhwa Brahmin's specialty side dish made with raw Mango or sour pineapple. Some people also make this with capsicum or long green chillies.

I like the pineapple version which is spicy sweet and tangy to taste. The flavour and smell are mouthwatering! This is one of the best curries in Udupi cuisines and here we go with Pineapple Menaskaayi.

Sour Pineapple - 500 Gms cut into small chunks
Grated coconut - 1/2 Cup
Red long chillies - 25
Coriander seeds - 1 Tbsp
Urad daal - 1 Tbsp
Fenugreek - 1 Tsp
White sesame seeds - 2 Tsp
Mustard - 1/2 Tsp
Jaggery - 50Gms grated
Coconut Oil - 2Tbsp

Roast all the dry spices and red chillies separately with little oil. Allow to cool.
Grind these along with grated coconut to a coarse paste.
Heat remaining oil in a thick bottomed vessel. add mustard seeds and allow them to splutter.
Now add the pineapple chunks, ground masala, grated jaggery, salt to taste and little water. Bring to a boil and then cover and simmer.
When pineapple pieces are tender and the masala is semi-thick, switch off the flame and serve with steaming rice and rasam.

No. This is more like our pulikoddel. Goes well with rice and rasam.
