Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring pineapple, sugar, and 1/2 cup water to a simmer in a small pan. Cook over low heat, stirring often, until the liquid evaporates, about 10 minutes. Add the coconut and stir once or twice. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Beat yogurt with a fork or whisk until smooth and creamy. Add the salt, green chili, and cooled pineapple-coconut mix. Stir to mix.
  3. Put the oil in a small frying pan over medium-high heat. When shimmering, scatter in the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and red chilies. In a few seconds, when the mustard seeds start to pop, add the curry leaves and shallots. Turn heat down to medium. Stir and cook until the shallots start to brown.
  4. Pour spiced oil over yogurt and stir well to combine. Serve.
