pineapple raita recipe with step by step photos – sweet, refreshing and a fruity raita made with fresh pineapples.

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. Can I use tinned pineapple……….

    • you can use tinned pineapple.

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

    • fresh pineapple can be added directly. but serve the raita immediately or after 15 to 20 minutes.

  3. 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.

    • welcome sujata. thanks for sharing your positive and sweet feedback. glad to know this. happy cooking.

  7. Verry nice raita

  8. Really yummmmmyy. but I generally do not add sugar in raita..

    • 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.

  9. It was excellent :))).,..Love ur recipes and the pics too !!keep up the good work for us 😉

    • thanks jas.

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