Step 1

Slice the pineapple and cucumber to small pieces.

Step 2

Grind together turmeric, cumin and coconut powder with little water into a very thin paste.

Step 3

Heat oil in a pan or a kadai.

Step 4

Splutter mustard seeds.

Step 5

Add black gram and allow it to turn brown.

Step 6

:- Do not allow it to turn black.

Step 7

Add onions and saute, till they turn brown.

Step 8

Add pineapple slices and a pinch of salt and stir for 3 - 5 mins.

Step 9

Add cucumber, chillies and salt.

Step 10

Add the coconut-turmeric-cumin mix and mix well.

Step 11

Cover the pan and cook, until the cucumber is done.

Step 12

Turn off the heat and wait for 3 mins.

Step 13

Add curd and mix well.

Step 14

:- Check the level of salt and add, if necessary.

Step 15

:- You can also use other vegetables instead of cucumber, for e.g. papaya along with pineapple.

Step 16

:- Curd is better than butter milk. You can use both to make this curry. However, if you use butter milk, it will be more watery and sour.
