 Pineapples when combined with thick whisked yogurt makes a perfect accompaniment for any Indian Main course . 

The sweet and tangy flavors from the pineapple raita pair well with a spicy biryani or pulao and strikes a superb balance of taste and enhances the eating experience. 

Pineapples are a power house of nutrients and very healthy . Rich in vit C ,antioxidants and a very good anti inflammatory property due to the presence of Bromelaine, a very powerful enzyme that helps fight inflammation in the body .

Pineapple juice is very effective in treating the sinuses and eases symptoms of cold and allergies.  Bromelain in addition to help alleviate pain of osteoarthritis also helps in maintaining heart health by keeping the cholesterol levels under check .

If we want to keep up with a healthy lifestyle then fresh pineapples must be included as a part of our diet plan regularly.   Pineapple Punch Pineapple Salsa , Cuban Pineapple Salad (courtesy- sizzling tastebuds by Kalyani )are perfect choices for all age groups and can be easily made with available ingredients in our pantry . More so, these recipes are no cook recipes, hence even a beginner or a teenager can also easily rustle them up .

To make pineapple raita we can either use canned or fresh pineapples . If using canned pineapples then drain out the sugar syrup completely before chopping the pineapples .

When using fresh pineapples, please ensure the fruit is sweet and not sour.  Sour or tart pineapples when mixed with yogurt /dahi ruin the taste of the raita .

Pineapple raita is best served chilled ,hence keep it refrigerated until serving.

Fresh corriander chopped
