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.
