Pineapple Gojju is a delightful sweet, sour and spicy curry recipe made using diced pineapples and a freshly ground spice paste, from the state of Karnataka in South India.
When Ratna shared a photo of pineapple gojju in the making on her Instagram feed, I knew I wanted to make it and taste it. It held promises of a tastebud-awakening sweet, spicy and sour flavours, when had with steaming hot rice and a spoonful of ghee- ah heaven!
She was kind enough to share the recipe with me. This is my adaptation of her pineapple gojju recipe, with a little alteration in the quantity of spices and dals to suit my tastes. Go check her superb book called ‘How the Banana Goes to Heaven‘ – which has a detailed history of some of the foods we eat and interesting recipes too!
