Step 1

Preparation Method
1)Drain the syrup out of canned pineapple.
:- If you don`t like very sweet pulissery, pour boiling water into pineapple pieces and squeeze remaining syrup out of it. This will remove extra sweetness of syrup from canned pineapple.

Step 2

Cook pineapple pieces(preferably in a pressure cooker) along with little water, 2 green chillies, salt and pinch of turmeric powder.
Note: Canned pineapple takes alot of time to get cooked.

Step 3

While pineapple is cooking grind together grated coconut, turmeric powder, cumin seeds, 3 green chillies and 3-4 curry leaves into a very smooth paste, by adding 1 tbsp water.

Step 4

Once pineapple is cooked, add the coconut mixture into it, mix and let it simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 5

Remove it from the flame.

Step 6

Add whipped set-yogurt(katta thairu) into it and mix thoroughly.

Step 7

Add required salt.

Step 8

For seasoning:
8)Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan or a kadai.

Step 9

Splutter mustard seeds followed red chillies.

Step 10

Add curry leaves in the end.

Step 11

Pour the above seasoning into the pineapple curry.

Step 12

:- Serve with rice.

Step 13

:- Pineapple can be replaced with cucumber. Don`t use pressure cooker for that as cucumber may get over-cooked.


loved it :) everyone in my family simply loves it ..thank you


Great reciple, but i would avoid having anu canned food. They are filled with chemical preservatives to prevent mold bacterial growth etc. These chemicals can cause cancer, alzeimers and a variety of autoimmune disorders. Fresh pineapple is the best thing to use.


wow..swathi..this recipe was too good...thought pineapple would be too sweet for pulissery.but tuned out wonderful..
