Slice the pineapple and cucumber to small pieces.
Grind together turmeric, cumin and coconut powder with little water into a very thin paste.
Heat oil in a pan or a kadai.
Splutter mustard seeds.
Add black gram and allow it to turn brown.
:- Do not allow it to turn black.
Add onions and saute, till they turn brown.
Add pineapple slices and a pinch of salt and stir for 3 - 5 mins.
Add cucumber, chillies and salt.
Add the coconut-turmeric-cumin mix and mix well.
Cover the pan and cook, until the cucumber is done.
Turn off the heat and wait for 3 mins.
Add curd and mix well.
:- Check the level of salt and add, if necessary.
:- You can also use other vegetables instead of cucumber, for e.g. papaya along with pineapple.
:- 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.
