Sweet and Sour Pineapple Chutney | Side Dish For Biryani, Friedrice and Pulao

Sweet and Sour Pineapple Chutney

My mom learned this recipe from my maternal grandmother. Right from my childhood days, whenever my mom makes Vegetable Biryani or Chicken Biryani, she would certainly make this Sweet and Sour Pineapple Chutney along with a Sweet Tomato Pachadi. Together with Biryani and Tomato Pachadi, it taste like heaven. When my mom asks me what special recipes can she manke on my Birthday, I would definitely say ‘The Trio’ combination. These are my family’s favorites recipes. This recipe also goes very well with Biryani, Fried Rice and Pulao. After I got married, I wanted to learn this recipe from her but somehow it just kept going. When my mom came here, she made it for my husband and his friends. All just fell in love with this “Trio” Combination. Gj then urged me to learn this recipe from my mom. Only last time when she came here for Shreeya’s delivery, I requested her to make this recipe for us. As usual, we all loved her preparation. She usually add color but Gj and myself are against adding artificial colors. So, I have given two detailed procedures: one with artificial color and the other without it. The recipe and the preparation remains the same for both except for the addition of artificial colors. This recipe has both spice and sweet. If you want it to be hot enough, add more red chillies. Now, lets move on to the recipe…
