Today, I’m very much excited to post this innovative (as per me) recipe. I never made this before, but I am pretty much confident with the recipe, after tasting this mind blowing combination.

I named it as Pineapple Perugu Pachadi / Yogurt Chutney. The sweetness in pineapple & slight sourness in the yogurt, made a great pair. And most importantly its made within a jiffy!! And if you observe the recipe, there’s an unique flavour I added. Try it and see!!

My younger daughter and my son are always fans of this juicy fruit. While my elder daughter dislikes it just like me. She says her tongue gets irritated, just by having two pieces. I always felt am not using this fruit efficiently in my cooking. To fill that gap, just out of curiosity, I tried this chutney recipe, which turned out just amazing!
