Pineapple Pulissery Recipe-Kerala-Pineapple in Yogurt Gravy-Onam Special Recipes

Pulissery is another popular sweet and sour yogurt based dish from Kerala. It is one of the many dishes in the Onam Sadya menu. I have posted Mambazha Pulissery 3 years back for onam festival. So for this onam I chose pineapple pulissery (pineapple moru curry). It is a very simple dish and is very easy to prepare. It can be served with any thoran and pappadam. Today we will learn how to make pineapple pulissery following this easy recipe. As it is a very simple recipe, I am not posting step wise pictures.
