pineapple raita recipe, pineapple raita

pineapple raita always reminds of the time, when i first had it in a restaurant in mumbai. i was doing my post graduate studies at that time and one of my pals took me to this restaurant and suggested that the pineapple raita was really good there.

i was not very keen. i was like pineapple in yogurt. is this girl gone crazy? but she persuaded me to have it and said you will never forget it. and she was right.

it was the best pineapple raita i have had till date. what i liked was they had also added pomegranate to the raita. so not only was it colorful but also gave a variation to the raita in taste as well as flavor. i tried pineapple raita in other restaurants too but they were not so good.

i made this pineapple raita and it came very close to the raita i had that day. when i make this raita, at times, i add pomegranate to the raita and at times skip adding them. then i just add the pomegranate as a garnish. you can even skip the pomegranate arils if you do not have them and just make the raita with pineapple.

  1. Do i need to boil the pineapple with sugar or can i add the fresh pineapple directly to the recipe.

  2. Your pineapple raita was DELICIOUS! I added pomegranate pearls too and they added to the looks as well as taste. Thank you so much for the recipe.

    • some raitas taste better than with sugar. its a matter of personal preference. in this recipe sugar accentuates the taste of the raita. but without sugar also the raita tastes good coz the sweetness comes from the pineapple and pomegranate.

  4. Beautiful photos… I have actually eaten pineapple with yogurt for breakfast but never really in the form of raita.

    • thanks chinmayie…. glad you liked the photos. in fact i so much like your style of photography and this compliment coming from you has made my day.

  5. My fav too….best ever combo pomegranate and pineapple….loved the idea of using fresh pineapples coz generally in all resturants they serve this using tinned one…can see the freshness of pineapple chunks in your clicks too….!!!
